About Down's Syndrome : Ben


My name is Ben.  I am 12 years old.  I am a photographer.

It’s good fun taking photos.Ben25Ben23


I really like to take photos. I try to take photos 3 or 4 times each week.

I like to take photos anywhere.Ben10

I like taking photos of things other people haven’t seen.Ben26


My favourite place to take photos was the wild life park. My favourite photos are of the giraffes.  Giraffes are my favourite animal as they are big and beautiful.

I don’t know what I want to do when I grow up, but taking photos would be a good job!
