Stuttering Society is the realisation of a long-held dream to create an online platform that truly embraces the stuttering community and their needs. As well as empowering and connecting people who stutter, we encourage meaningful conversations about issues related to communication disorders and strive to find new solutions to help those who stutter in different aspects of their lives.
Stuttering Society is founded and directed by Raiani Sibien, who herself grew up with a speech block. She wanted to create a platform that could help others dealing with communication disorders while raising awareness about the topic and increasing the visibility of stuttering in public life.
Raiani graduated with a Bachelor (with Honours) in journalism from a British university before undertaking a Master’s degree in security and diplomacy. She has since worked for a number of prestigious international organisations such as the United Nations (UN) and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
Since leaving her hometown in Brazil in 2006, Raiani had the opportunity to study and work in several countries, including England, Italy, Israel, Switzerland, Belgium, and the United States.
