Emily by Emily

Hello my name is Emily. I’m 25. I love my life. Life is fulfilling and beautiful thing to have. Like having relationships in my home. Family relationships like mother and daughter, father and daughter. I live with my mum and dad and the rest of my family are my sister Laura and my brother-in-law Mac and also my younger brother Matthew and my sister-in-law Kerry. I am an auntie to Milly and Joshua.

I like to do musical theatre. I go to Clubbercise, there’s glo-sticks and lots of chart music. I do all the moves. It’s about exercise and keeping fit. I go with my support worker Lily. I feel sweaty and hot.

I go to college and I’m studying health and social care. I’m learning about keeping children safe. I do money and time management, English and Maths. I’ve made some new friends. Last year I did catering and I passed. I go to college to learn, focus and work hard.

I work part time at the hairdressers, The Cutting Room. I do the housekeeping. I have a break with a sausage sandwich and pop. I have to be on time and not late. The best bit is my wages and I spend it on new clothes, Costa coffee and magazines.

I have Down’s syndrome and I’ve got learning difficulties. I have good feelings for Down’s syndrome – it’s about having my own rights.

I like partying and dancing!
