Proveing Peole worng : AZ's water edition

( AZ summer 1998 age 6)

It was the summer before fourth grade I was nine years old and like many youth I attended summer camp. It was located at a high school and was a day camp that had kids from Kindergarten to Eighth grade . I was in a group that consisted of regular fourth graders and was looking forward to having a good time at camp. All went well until we headed down to the pool for swimming lessons. Don't get me wrong I knew how to swim. My mom and dad signed me up for Meany swimming lessons group and private along with mid-sis and baby. I was good and knew the storks but could not kick straight due to CP. I kick in the water with bent legs but it works the same. Well the instructors told me that i needed to stay in the shallow end due to the fact that I kicked funny. I was not content to stay in the shallow end because I knew how to swim and the rest of my group mates were in the deep end of the pool. I am stubborn and countless time that summer i tryed to get out of the shallow end. I hated camp.

The flowering year my mom and dad signed baby mid-sis and I up for the same camp. I was not thirded. This time I complained to mid-sis and we both went to my consular and I told her ."I know how to swim. " the  leader replied that she believed me but mid-sis was not convinced. That summer came with a improvement I got to swim in the deep end with a lifeguard in the water with me. I was not happy but camp didn't last the whole summer due to the manger of the camp stole the money.

You may be wondering why I am telling you this story so here is why. People have low expectations for disabled people. I for one like to prove people wrong. At the begging of the month we were suppose to fill out classes for next year. Again teachers was not willing to sign me up for AP history or English. I love proving people wrong but I don't get to do it all the time. I love being a AP student for one period (History). The teachers didn't want me to try but I want to prove them wrong . I hope am able to switch classes around before the end of the year.

Happy world Down syndome Day



Something that I have learned form L (my friend with DS) is to expect surprise in the basketball game he did a lay-up sorry it is hard to explain to all you non b ball players. He idolizes Michael Jordan and is teenager who I like to be around.L inspired me to do my inclusion speech because I wish that his peers could see how wonderful he is.

Schools out part dos

  I went to  So yesterday (see post below) and all went well for the new kids on the block.      We played against  L's team  but we lost but made a  come back and got second place.   I have goals for my team    the goal is that everyone is involved.  Yesterday one guy  was the one who  was   doing most of the  work while the rest  ran around  the cough.     So considering that  and the fact that we didn't bring balls to practice. We know better next time. Our team did a super  job. So go team
