I live with my parents and I’m 29 years old. Salt lake city is my hometown and I have three pugs.
I have downs syndrome. Sometimes people been teasing me cause I look different. I went to many schools. I was vulnerable and it would make people want to tease me when I was in school. One time a boy spitted on me on my glasses. Another time a girl pinched me hard on the shoulder and it hurt. And other students would call me slow. And when people do these things it kind of makes me a little sad and hurt.
I am equal!!
I love my family and they are precious to me. I like to go to the movies with my brothers and listen to my favorite singer Taylor Hicks. I’m happy when I see my dogs run outside. I like to write plays and take pictures and I got a blue ribbon on my latchhook rug that I made. I’d like people to treat me like a mature young adult and with respect. And I think people should treat others the same way.
