These are some of the people who are my inspirations.

First off, I want you to meet my favorite human- Ms. Stefanie. I work with a non-profit called, Live Up Programs. The organizations pairs adult participants with down syndrome with similarly aged mentors to focus on healthy living, independent living, and building a community between those rocking the extra chromosome and those without.

Stef is the sweetest, most beautiful spirit. She  is a strawberry smoothie lover, Special Olympics Swimmer, Pretty Little Liars addict, and the biggest fan that Taylor Swift has ever had.

More importantly, Stef tries new things every day with me. From pumping gas to learning how to use the checkouts at the grocery store. When I’m not sure if I can do new things, I look to Stef for inspiration.
