Ellen Jane Peterson
Hello. My name is Ellen Jane Peterson and I am eighteen years old. I am in high school. I have Down Syndrome.
I have a job after school working at the veterinarian hospital two days a week. I help take care of the animals and I love my job. I also like listening to music, dancing, hanging out with my friends, and swimming. Sometimes school is hard but mostly it’s fun.
Hi to everybody out there in website world! As a ten year-old superstar (haha in my mind), I like to play basketball, science is my favorite subject, and I dream of racing in the NYC marathon one day. I’m also one-half of a great team - I have a twin brother named Mike who looks just like me EXCEPT for the cruiser (my wheelchair’s nickname). I have cerebral palsy, he doesn’t.
Yo website readers! My age is ten, my friends are fun, and my game is cool. Um – I’m studying poetry in school now, So I try to be “poetic” all the time. I like reading, love writing, have a great time playing baseball on my baseball team, and am learning to salsa! In case you didn’t notice from my picture, I’m blind. But that doesn’t stop me from doing anything.
Kids rule! I’m ten years old and in the same class as Mark. I like basketball, music class (I’m learning to play the trombone), history, and making chocolate chip cookies. I wear glasses for school. I would like to be a reporter when I grow up and travel around the world writing stories about all different kinds of people.
