Emily Blunt

Emily Blunt

An AIS board member since 2009, actor/producer/philanthropist Emily Blunt advocates for stuttering awareness. Her willingness to share her personal stuttering challenges has encouraged other public figures to come forward to do the same. Emily took the challenges of being a child who stuttered and turned them into a force for positive change and inspiration. Her film career is legendary; she has a magical way of turning her characters into icons.
