Losing What We Really Take for Granted – Language

After realizing how much I struggled, I decided I wanted to help people who had gone
through situations like mine. Now I am at Governors State University, studying to be a speech
pathologist or an interpreter for the deaf. My language barrier may have been hard to deal with,
but I am thankful for the impact it has had on my life. It has led me to the light at the end of the tunnel. It has led me to find what I really want to be in life. I cannot wait to continue my journey with language while also helping others overcome their own struggles. #stuttering
