Finding our voice

I could well be the last person in Britain to see this clip from Educating Yorkshire, but I am really glad I watched it.

Last week I wrote about the possibility and necessity of everybody finding their voice, because I’m dreaming of the possibility of all of us telling our stories and everyone being heard.

The clip provides us with a very concrete example of someone who is finding their voice (literally) by overcoming the difficulties of a speech impediment. Most of us do not have to overcome an obstacle like this as we struggle to find our voice, but Mushy’s story provides us with an audible and visual image of what it is like to find a way to speak when we have struggled to find our voice.
