This Brave, 13-Year-Old Boy Overcame His Stutter Thanks to Joe Biden - Watch His Moving DNC Speech!

Brayden Harrington, a 13-year-old from New Hampshire who overcame his stutter with help from Joe Biden, is being praised for his moving speech during the 2020 Democratic National Convention.

Moments before Biden accepted the Democratic presidential nomination, Brayden gave a two-minute speech that is being hailed as one of the most powerful moments of the entire convention.

Brayden talked about meeting Biden earlier this year and how the presidential nominee told him they’re “members of the same club.” He added, “we stutter.”

“It was really amazing to hear that someone like me would become vice president,” Brayden said. “He told me about a book of poems by Yeats he would read out loud to practice. He showed me how he marks his addresses to make them easier to say out loud. So I did the same thing today.”

“I’m just a regular kid, and in a short amount of time, Joe Biden made me more confident about something that’s bothered me my whole life,” he said while concluding the speech. “Joe Biden cared. Imagine what he can do for all of us.”
