I’ve always loved writing. I was born with a cleft palate, and my speech was very difficult to understand up to the age of ten, so I always carried a notebook which allowed me to write when verbal conversation failed. Now I teach pronunciation with no trace of my former challenges. Perhaps my trusty notebook led to my love of writing, whether it’s poetry, a song, a novel or a corporate newsletter.
