Lil JaXe - Young Rapper Who Happens to Stutter

Nate & I leave tomorrow morning for Florida!  We are headed to the National Stuttering Association's Annual Conference, where we're going to give a presentation together as well as volunteer in a couple of different areas.  This is only our 2nd conference, but it feels like we're headed into an alternate family!

This morning,  I was sent a link to a video of JaXe and his mom being interviewed on Canada AM.  JaXe is now 13 years old, and following his dream of rapping.  JaXe also happens to stutter, but he hasn't let that stop him!

There are so many ways to cope with a stutter -- and I'm so proud of anyone who doesn't let it hold them back.  While singing doesn't stop Nate's stutter, he thinks it's great that JaXe is following his dream and helping spread awareness!

Here's the interview:

I'm not sure if JaXe and his family already know about the NSA, but if they don't, I hope they check it out!

If you're looking for more information about stuttering, I recommend visiting the NSA site ( and the Stuttering Foundation (
