Three years ago in October, we began our “In My Own Words” blog, dedicated to sharing the stories, reflections, and experiences of people with Down syndrome. Since then, we’ve been lucky enough to interview so many truly wonderful people with Down syndrome, and taken a lot of inspiration from all the different kinds of work they do! Please read their stories at: and let us know if you have a story to share, or would like to be interviewed!

“I interview people with Down syndrome because I think their stories need to be heard, and because I enjoy making new friends all over the world,” says Sam.
