How it all began

It was the Summer of 2011. I just finished up eighth grade and was enjoying my Summer vacation. There was a heat wave, and no one could bear to be outside, which meant I was stuck inside. I am an only child so hanging out with my parents has always been a regular activity. We all decided to watch a movie, and of course, they beat me out for the movie. Little did I know that what I was about to watch would change my life forever. My parents pressed play, and The King’s Speech began. If you have never seen this movie, please go watch it right at this very moment. It is about King George VI and how he persevered through life despite having a communication disorder. While watching the movie, it was as if my future flashed before my eyes. I saw myself helping someone like King George VI. During the movie, I energetically yelped out, “I want to be a speech therapist! (This was before I knew that the proper name is a Speech-Language Pathologist.) For the rest of the Summer, I researched everything under the sun about being a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP). Who knew that from watching a movie, I would figure out what I want to do for the rest of my life.
