About the author: I am Patrick Campbell, a 22 year old person who stutters studying medicine at the Hull York Medical School in England. I also have an undergraduate degree in genetics. I was previously a covert stutter but with the help of speech therapy and the stuttering community over the past three years I have became a lot more accepting of my stutter. I have recently became a trustee for the British Stammering Association.
Patrick talks about how attending a European Youth meeting for young people who stutter started him on a journey from covert to overt. Specifically, he describes how the concept that “it is Ok to stutter” has empowered him to make positive changes in his life.
