Jake Zeldin has struggled with a serious stutter all his life, but when he raps the stutter disappears! My dad, Eric, met him last year, and was so impressed with Jake that he wanted to do the interview with him at the 140 Conference in New York. Below is the video to see him wow the crowd (Jake, not my dad, although I think he did well, too.)
His mother, Robyn, says they worked with different speech therapies but nothing worked. At camp, Jake discovered when he rapped, his stutter disappeared completely. It’s been hard for Jake at school and has been bullied. After this, I’m sure this won’t happen anymore. He’s a huge inspiration to me, and I know to others, as well. Way to go, Jake!
