If you’ve ever seen the movie The King’s Speech, you remember the incredible feeling at the end when the King finally overcame the debilitating speech impediment he suffered from since he was a boy. Musharaf Asghar is no King, he is just a young man who has suffered his entire life, like the king, with a terrible stutter.
In this heartwarming video, Mushy’s teacher uses the same method as in the movie – using music to overcome anxiety – to help Mushy speak. For this man, even getting a few words out felt impossible, but once he started getting the hang of it, there was no stopping him.
The most beautiful part is when Mushy speaks in front of his entire classroom, to the same kids who have bullied him for his disability, and finally shows them he can shine. There were tears and there were cheers, but all that matters is how proud Mushy is of himself.
