I want people to know that even though I have Down syndrome, I don't feel any different from them. I like to do the same things that they do and I want to be included because I love making new friends.
Emily is a high school student that makes time in her busy schedule to be a To Be Like Me LEADer. She enjoys playing basketball, tennis, and soccer. Emily is also a barista at her high school’s coffee shop, Scottie Joes. Although spending time with her friends is her favorite activity, she also loves painting, dancing, watching movies, and attending Bible study. Emily’s favorite memory of working at To Be Like Me is when the students that she was talking to started clapping for her! Way to go Emily!
