About Down's Syndrome : Katherine

Down's syndrome

My name is Katherine. I am 26 years old and live at home with my mum, dad and brother.

I have a very busy life. On a Monday and Tuesday I work part time at the Marks and Spencer café where I serve customers, clear tables, load the dishwasher and stock the shelves. I love my job specially
talking to the customers.Down's syndrome

On a Wednesday I help out at a local florist in the morning. I enjoy sorting the flowers and making bows and having a chat with the other florists.
On a Thursday I help out at the local primary school helping the younger children with reading and writing. I enjoy working with the reception class.
I also enjoy going out with my friends to social events such as bowling, discos and youth club. I enjoyed the Abba night at the Rugby Club.
