I was extremely blessed to be asked to attend a party to celebrate the wrap up of World Down Syndrome Day. The party was put on by the International Down Syndrome Coalition as an ending event to a whole week celebrating Down Syndrome Day. Down Syndrome Day is 3/21 which represents the triplication of the 21st chromosome. I was treated like royalty at this gathering, but in all honestly I was the lucky one. I met some amazing people and danced the night away!! The highlight of the night was being asked if I was Taylor Swift by an adorable little girl. I had to admit I couldn’t sing a note, but I am a big Taylor fan and I was EXTREMELY flattered.
This event will always be etched in my mind as the event that made me realize how much of a role model I am. When I put on this crown I am doing a job, a job I love more than anything in the world. ❤
