Camp Words Unspoken was one of the most profound and impactful experiences of my educational career. It was an absolute joy to watch the kids grow and gain confidence. They taught me more about stuttering than any class could. This summer camp reminded me exactly why I want to be a speech-language pathologist and is something I will carry for the rest of my career!
