Caden Short, 16, is currently a Junior at Phoenix Country Day School in Arizona and has stuttered as long as he can remember. Dallas was his 6th NSA conference. Caden is a co-chapter leader of the Phoenix TWST Chapter and has been serving on the TAC since last year. Athletics are also a large part in Caden’s life. He enjoys playing both football and baseball for his high school’s teams. Caden also enjoys history, math, and physics. He believes stuttering is not something to be ashamed of, nor is it something to hide, and hopes to inspire others to become confident speakers. Caden is looking forward to his first year as the TAC Chair and meeting new people and catching up with friends in Chicago.
