    Meet a DS-AMBASSADOR®

    People have approached me many times since I have become an ambassador.  Some people have wanted direction or help on topics ranging from inclusion, finding therapists, or extracurricular activities.  There have been circumstances where people have come to me to question the role of disability rights in human rights. Yesterday, a lady approached me because she read that I was named ambassador of the year.  She explained to me that she lost a baby with Down syndrome when she was six months pregnant many years ago.  The lady wanted to talk about her pain. My ambassadorship allows me to pass on this guidance.  It allows me to be an ear for people who need to talk.  I am given the opportunity to serve others.
