Down Syndrome advocacy, competitive swimming, modeling and more – with Mary Borman
October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month, and I'm excited to host my first podcast guest who is talking about Down syndrome! Mary Borman is an ambassador for Down syndrome and 2018 Self-Advocate of the Year for the National Down Syndrome Society. We recorded this episode a few weeks ago, while Mary was preparing to compete at the Down Syndrome World Swimming Championships in Portugal this month.
We talk about several of Mary's accomplishments, which include:
- Swimming competitively and winning medals at the Special Olympics National Games and Down Syndrome World Swimming Championships
- Modeling in Northwest Arkansas Fashion Week
- Lobbying for disability rights and legislation
- Speaking to organizations across the U.S. about Down syndrome
