& # 39; My time at The Voice was really the launch platform that allowed me to show everyone what I can do and where I want to go with my music and my life, & # 39; Harrison said.

& # 39; It's very easy for people to look at something (such as a stutter) as an obstacle, but then it limits you … but if you take it as a challenge, it's a better attitude to have. & # 39;

Harrison continues to travel across the country every year, but he admits that his stuttering has offered him surprising opportunities to help others in unexpected ways.

The book, which deals with overcoming adversity, was created in collaboration with United Way – an organization that focuses on improving communities around the world.

& # 39; It has been really great because (the book) has helped schools and children who want to learn to overcome challenges in their lives – it was really fun & # 39 ;, he said.

Harrison, who has already undergone extensive treatment to learn how to control his stuttering, said he became involved in Speech Pathology Week.

& # 39; It was not something I actively went out and preached about, but it is a big part of the person I am and the journey I made with The Voice, & # 39; he said.

& # 39; I started to stutter from about the age of two and from that moment on it was a journey to get that under control and learn how to control it. & # 39;
