Location: Cookstown, County Tyrone
Campaign: I want people with disabilities to know that they are just as capable as everyone else

I love my life and enjoy modelling.  I’m going to a beauty pageant later this year and have done Belfast Fashion Week before, which was amazing.

 

I have Down's syndrome and want to show others that having a disability doesn’t make you less capable than anyone else.

 

My message to young people with disabilities is to trust and believe in themselves. 

 

I want to tell them that different is amazing.

I would like to thank my mum Dierdre and Mary McCann, Operations Manager at Ulster Supported Employment and Learning (USEL), for being in my broadcast film.
