Watch: Let this stuttering songstress inspire you

TAKE a moment out of your Monday to be inspired by spending a few minutes with the ARIA award-winning Megan Washington.

On stage she is a vision of confidence, able to deliver a perfectly poised performance.

But to hear her speak is something else.

It has been viewed more than 200,000 times on the TED website.

Megan Washington is one of Australia's premier singer/songwriters. 

And, since childhood, she has had a stutter.

In this bold and personal talk, she reveals how she copes with this speech impediment-from avoiding the letter combination "st" to tricking her brain by changing her words at the last minute to, yes, singing the things she has to say rather than speaking them.
