My Great Story
My Great Story

Hi my name is Angela Thomas and I have Down syndrome. I am now 27 years old. I love God, my friends and my family. They mean so much to me. I have accomplished so much in my life. I have won the youth volunteer of the year award at Tucson VA hospital. One of my greatest accomplishments was my high school diploma. It took a lot of time and hard work for me to get it, but I got it and I want to thank all my teachers in helping and guiding me to live the life God has given me and to Chris Burke who inspires me to go after my dreams with his kindness and compassion for people with differences along with a beautiful heart makes him a real angel.
