My Inspirations

Hi! My name is Caroline, I'm 15, and I believe that everybody should have the same opportunities! I have been interested in learning about Down syndrome and other special needs for about two years now. I help teach dance classes for kids with Down syndrome at the dance studio where I dance. These kids try so hard and inspire me to work hard in everything I do. They have inspired me to open a performing and visual arts center for children and adults with special needs. I hope to go to college first and then hopefully I can start my arts center and give everyone a chance to follow their dreams and be successful. I can't picture myself wanting to do anything else more than to encourage children to strive for their best and make it far. I have been inspired and touched by these kids and their individuality and creativity.
