hen I was five or six I could not pronounce my R’s, S’s or T’s. So words such as beautiful came out as boobital.In fact if you listen closely to me speak to this day you can still hear it. Words such as fear and
fair, bear and beer come out the same. Because I could not speak, I could not read very well. Because I could not read, I would always score one of the lowest in the class on exams. I knew I was dumb, everyone I knew thought I was dumb.
