Lecturer and Consultant
My name is Kevin, and I have a speech impediment. I have a stutter, and I am now using it to share and motivate people trying to make sense of the presence of obstacles. However, it was not like this just three years ago. I used to see it as a curse, and often feeling sad over my impediment. The strange thing is, I am a lecturer by vocation. And then, something changed. At least, something changed the way I saw things. I never really understood that perhaps, God has let me go through this for a good reason. There could be a purpose. I have learnt to embrace the stutter, but not after a long struggle with it.
