I am a current college student, who has grown up with a cousin who has Down Syndrome. Through that experience and constant learning about what DS is like, I have found the disability community a rather homey place. I like trying new things, and new adventures, and care-giving seems like such a great opportunity to learn a new aspect of life. I am positive, caring, and never give up. I spent the summer of 2016 in a remote town of Harmons, Jamaica. While living there for 3 months, we would travel to the nearby infirmary. At the infirmary I built upon relationships I had made the previous summer. My weekly time at the infirmary is truly indescribable, seeing the pain and anguish these sweet people are living in, yet they are the most joyful, will forever give me hope and light a fire in me to live my best life. I am so proud of my friends in the infirmary, I'm proud of my cousin, and I am proud of my sweet friend who also has DS. I love to love on the broken, or the weary. I just truly have a heart for the ones who are often over looked in any sense, and even the ones who need a little extra love in the rough seasons of life. I'm easy to connect with, and truly excited to see where CareLinx leads me.
