About Down's Syndrome : Emily

Hello…my name is Emily.

I work at a local hair salon as a salon assistant. Leigh is the owner and another salon assistant called Phoebe helps me and shows me how to do the jobs well. I love my job because it helps me to think a lot about my life and my skills. I like my space and independence.

I love meeting the customers and I enjoy making cups of tea and coffee and taking the payments on the till. I am good at getting out the record cards for each customer. Leigh is really pleased with how I am getting on at work.

I enjoy spending my wages on Costa coffee, magazines and new clothes.
