About Down's Syndrome : Zena

Down's syndrome

My name is Zena. I am 25 years old and I have my own flat.

I have an NVQ Level 1 and Level 2. I studied 3 years in Hospitality, Catering, Front of House and on a farm.

I love Cilla Black. I would say that showbiz is in my blood.

I work as an usher at the local theatre. I love it! I man the collection desk and take the tickets and show people to their seats. I also sell ice cream in the intermission. I love every moment of it – it’s a feeling like I’ve never had!

BBC Three made a film about me. You can watch it here.
