Caden is currently a Senior at Phoenix Country Day School in Arizona and has stuttered as long as he can remember. Chicago was his 7th NSA conference. Caden has been a member of the TAC for three years, serving as Chairman for the past two. Athletics are a large part in Caden’s life. He enjoys playing both football, baseball, and track and field for his high school’s teams. Caden believes stuttering is neither something to be ashamed of, nor is something to hide. He hopes to inspire others to become confident speakers and further engage with the NSA. Caden is grateful that stuttering gave him the opportunity to be a member of the NSA community and is looking forward to his second year as the TAC Chair and meeting new people and catching up with friends in Ft. Lauderdale.
