Phillip Cole

A profile of Phillip, one of our regular Your Voice contributors.

"My name is Phillip Cole 23, and I work as a Quality Assurance Tester for a financial company. I have had a stammer since I was 7 years old but this is not what I feel defines me. More prominently I am an avid writer, a budding philanthropist and a consistently stressed Arsenal fan.

I have had a chaotic and fulfilling journey to reach the point where I feel comfortable to speak candidly about my stammer and welcome any others to reach out to me so I can offer advice on my lived experiences."
