“One thing people don't know about me from looking at me…”
From Tiffany Loncke Urban Assembly School for Law and Justice

Hello, my name is Tiffany Loncke and my age is 14, I attend the Urban Assembly School for Law and Justice. One thing people don’t know about me from looking at me is that I have had a speech impediment and I stuttered in my childhood and for some of my teen years I still kind of have it.

Interview conducted in Brooklyn, NY.
