Matt Phillips

    Matt Phillips, 18, is a senior at Ellington High School in Connecticut. Dallas was Matt’s 3rd conference and he is grateful for all the people he has met through the NSA. He has learned so much about advocacy and how to be a confident person through stuttering and hopes to inspire others. Matt can be found playing the sax in his high school’s jazz band, completing community service projects through National Honor Society and a local service group, and serving as Chapter Leader of the Ellington, CT Family Chapter of the National Stuttering Association. After high school, he plans on studying speech-language pathology so he can help more people who stutter. This is Matt’s first year on the Teen Advisory Council, and he is beyond excited to help make a difference in the stuttering community. (bio updated 12/2017)
