My name is Richard. I am 32 years old. I enjoy going out to the pub and the cinema
I have 3 jobs, at home base, in a garden centre and at a local school. It is the same mainstream high school I attended in which I achieved 8 G.C.S.E’s, being the first pupil with Down’s syndrome to get that amount of grades in the school’s history.
I am the first person locally with Down’s syndrome to achieve my black belt in karate which led to me being in a local papers.
I live on my own in my supported living flat and love the independence that I have. I go to local run clubs and visit the cinema most weekends.
I have been with my partner for 11 months and we are now engaged and planning our wedding I am currently writing a novel similar to Harry Potter as this is my favourite genre of films/ books. I am just in the stages of my final re-reads and I cannot wait for it to be finished so I can become rich and famous.
