Stuttering could be a major handicap in an individual's life. This is the story of how I overcame and learned not to let it define who I am. From the hurtful laughter as I tried to read aloud in school, the self-doubt, and the feeling of defeat. Stuttering made me who I am today and I am thankful for it.


My name is Hong Nguyen and I am 32 years old. An immigrant from Vietnam before I was even a year old, I strive to help my parents achieve the American Dream. I am still very far from it.
