Because I had Down syndrome, all my life I had love and caring and more understanding. I learn how to speak out in the community. I want people to understand me and I am willing to help them. When I first started at ArcGNO, I had new friends to welcome me. I have the feeling like I can just be myself. I like to learn different things in my new life like taking care of myself and to go outside to see all different colors flying across a light blue sky. I always have a beautiful smile when I remember all of things I can do.
