National Stuttering Association

Clara Kilburn

    Clara is a senior at Pomona College majoring in Chinese Language. An aspiring diplomat, she credits her stutter, besides the usual hindrances, with helping her develop great courage and tenacity that allows her to conquer whatever other challenges she meets. Clara works for her school’s radio station and participates in Model United Nations. As someone who faces these challenges herself, through the DEI Committee she hopes to help make the NSA more accessible place to those with logistical or financial barriers to attending the in-person Annual Conferences.
