On October 29th, the topic of stuttering made the rounds on social media with the BuzzFeed article, “25 Things All People Who Stutter Will Understand.” People throughout the stuttering community voiced their opinions about the piece, with many feeling a sense of truth and understanding. We agree that the piece captures stuttering in a truthful light, and with a twist of humor from BuzzFeed’s GIFs.

Because she is a person who stutters, it seemed obvious to her stuttering would be a great topic. Check out the interview below!
