It’s time to meet our seventeenth entrepreneur with Down syndrome. Some of you may know our next rising actress, self-advocate, public speaker, artist and entrepreneur from her role in the tv documentary on A&E “Born This Way”.
But Megan Bomgaars has always been in the spotlight and advocating for her rights and others in a video that went viral entitled “Don’t Limit Me”
She travels the world doing public speaking engagements and was invited to the White House to hear President and Mrs. Obama speak about the Reach Higher initiative in this bonus scene from “Up Syndrome.”
Please continue following us as we celebrate 21 entrepreneurs who own their own business, have a meaningful job and the companies that are hiring individuals with Down syndrome, as we lead up to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day on March 21st.
I'm a proud Mom, Special Needs Mommy Blogger, passionate Health Advocate, Social Media Influencer, Publisher & Author. I am passionate about spreading awareness and acceptance for children with special needs, and to compel others to show compassion for their families who love them. In this blog I give you a window into the beauty of Down Syndrome, celebrate my son's accomplishments and struggles, and share the joys of motherhood and our everyday lives as a typical family with a little something "extra". My son is truly my greatest gift. He has changed my life and has made me a better person. People like my son are making an impact on society one smile at a time!
