Femke Merel van Kooten is an ambassador for Del Ferro


Femke Merel van Kooten

Since 2020, Femke Merel has been an ambassador for the Del Ferro Institute. As a former second MP, it is hard to imagine that she had a severe stuttering problem as a young girl. For years, she was unable to pronounce her name, despite intensive speech therapy she attended. She achieved her dream of speaking fluently at 13 when she overcame stuttering with the Del Ferro method. Making that dream a reality, she wants to bring it within reach for all people who stutter.

With all my love, I am committed to Del Ferro, because you cannot be who you are if you stutter
