13 January Meeting Report

  • Last Wednesday Kaikohe Rotary met for the first time in 2016. We heard an inspiring presentation from Paula Jack. Paula spoke of having a stutter. The cause of stuttering is unknown and 90% of sufferers are men. But Paula has had a stutter since she was three years old.

  • But she is determined that having a stutter will not define her life. Indeed, Paula wants to become a motivational speaker. She told us that her stutter had been like a cloak that had enveloped her. But through determination she was now casting off the cloak.

  • Congratulations, Paula for showing us what you are made of. You'll go far.
