I was planning to talk about having stutters earlier in my life and taking steps to avoid them until they no longer impacted me in a secondary essay. I would also discuss the values I learned from this journey for secondaries and the adversity I have overcome.

My one concern is if any adcoms will look negatively at discussing this as adversity since based on personal experiences, people seem to make judgments based on a stutter. Would this be an appropriate topic to discuss or should I think of other potential topics?
