The dreaded lisp

Confession time. I had a lisp for most of my childhood. It took three years of speech therapy to break my habit. It was really hard, but  my teacher made it very clear that I would never be taken seriously if I kept my lisp.

Twelve years later and now I´m being ordered to lisp. I am still caught off guard hearing so many people speaking with lisps. I can hear my old speech teacher saying ¨they´ll never get jobs with those lisps.¨ A part of me is afraid to get comfortable lisping again. What if I can´t stop?

Here´s my HeSo lesson I´m taking away from this. It´s a stretch, but bear with me. People are always going to try and change you. You´re never perfect enough. But sometimes what you have been told is a flaw, might be considered attractive to someone else. Appreciate your excentricities. Now say that with a lisp!

See, even Megan Fox has a lisp

  1. ¡Es verdad! Pero pienso que la professora estuve correcto. Ella estaba hablando solamente de las Estados Unidos.

    Quisiero mas detailes de la familia en Salamanco con quien estas viviendo.
