About Down's Syndrome : Karen

Woman in her own flat

My name is Karen.  I have lived in my own flat for over 10 years.  Recently I had a party to celebrate that!  I get help from support workers to live in my flat.

I am very busy! I go to college and do courses in IT, maths, crafts and massage. I also like to go to the gym, listen to rap music and watch wrestling. I love playing football and going to the Science Museum.

I go to college by myself. I like to travel on my own on trains and buses. I make sure I take keys, phone and bus pass
with me.

I really enjoy creating poems. I finds writing hard so  asks my support workers to write my poetry down for me.

Karen lives a very full and busy life and has her own flat
