Annie is fifteen and a freshman at Pequot Lakes High School in Minnesota. They have stuttered since age six, and view it as more of a blessing than a curse. Though it is mild, it’s still there, and has enabled them to meet many amazing people. They believe a stutter should not hold anyone back from doing what they love. Annie shows that belief by being in many activities that show their passion for music, such as concert and pep band, jazz band, and marching band. The 2020 conference will be their first as a TAC member and their third overall.
