Caitlyn Jenner Opens Up on 'Voice Issue' at ESPYs

Caitlyn Jenner Opens Up on 'Voice Issue' at ESPYs
Reality star Caitlyn Jenner took to her blog to reflect on her memorable time at the ESPYs last week.

The 65-year-old former Olympian opened up about her nerves before hitting the stage to accept the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. "As a dyslexic kid, my biggest fear in life was to go in front of the class and read because I just wasn't very good at it -- and that stays with you through your whole life. I'm better off getting up there knowing what I'm going to say and doing it. But at the ESPYS, I really had to stick to the prompter because I only had a certain number of minutes to make it right, to get my points across. I practiced, and practiced, and practiced, and practiced to make sure I'd nail it."

Another big issue that Caitlyn worried about was how people would perceive her voice. "While I felt like I looked great and that the gown looked fabulous, I still have a voice issue. It's not quite right compared to my feminine appearance. That bothers me a little bit. However, I hope that people don’t listen to the pitch of my voice, but listen to what I have to say. That's important to me."

Caitlyn's fashion is certainly a hit. She was just named one of the best-dressed women of the week by Vogue for her elegant look in a white Atelier Versace silk gown at the ESPYs, designed by Donatella Versace.
