CONFIDENCE

MY STUTTERING DOESN'T HOLD ME BACK

Submitted by Andrew

Hey, my name is Andrew and when I was younger I used to stutter a lot. I was often picked on for it, especially in middle school. But when I went to high school I started working out. Working out gave me so much confidence that it brought my stuttering to a minimum. As a child I always dreamed of serving in the armed forces. With that extra confidence I joined the Air Force. Although I still stutter, it's not as much anymore. But I didn't let it get in the way of me wanting to pursue my dream of serving my country. I start basic training March 29th. Wish me luck. Thank you for taking the time to read this. And remember to support the U.S. Air Force!
