Eli is 18 years old and just graduated from high school in Windsor, Missouri. Eli has been a life-long Person Who Stutters and feels that it is more of a gift than a curse. In 2017, he found the NSA and it changed his life. In 2020, he joined the Teen Advisory Council. In his free time, he enjoys exploring, traveling, bowling, and playing video games of almost any kind. He is looking forward to attending the University of Central Missouri next fall where he will be majoring in Anthropology. As a member of the TAC, Eli hopes to help others realize that stuttering is not a bad thing and can, actually, be a great thing. Attending annual conferences is the highlight of each year, and he is always excited for the opportunity to mentor others who struggle with stuttering.
