Marsha Pinto - the shy girl who started this movement
Marsha Pinto, is a practicing and licensed Speech Therapist in San Jose, California in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Marsha has devoted her life to helping kids express themselves without hesitation.
She sees herself in many of the quiet, soft-spoken and shy kids and has made it her mission to help them to never feel isolated in society because of their unique trait.
Marsha says that there's a lot of work to be done for her movement to gain full momentum. Spreading awareness of the fact that the quiet, soft-spoken and shy are not in any way abnormal or lacking in ability, is key to the success of the softestVOICES movement.
Marsha has gained the support of media around the world who have realized the great importance of such a cause.
Well known celebrities, media personalities, leaders and entrepreneurs who were once upon a time shy and some of them who still are, have aligned themselves with this movement. They have confession to the fact that they too were challenged by society because of their shyness and quietness.
