I just started my new job with the National Down Syndrome Society and I absolutely love it. I am the Manager of Grassroots Advocacy. I go to Capitol Hill to briefings, meetings with staff members. On our new website that was redone I will have my own podcasts for Kayla’s Korner. I have done two podcast tapings so far. I have been making phone calls for our new and annual adult summit coming up as well as the Buddy Walk on Washington. I wenr into a meeting with one of my colleagues and when we came out of it we had VIP hockey tickets. That was an awesome night. Khadijah from our NY office spent time with me, teaching me how to use the Metro. I am now taking independently. I kind of like it. I have spent some nights on my own at Sara’s house and figuring it out as I go. It’s not that bad. I really love my job but I have been missing my parents, so when I can, I text and call when I get the chance FaceTime too. I feel like I am really helping the Down Syndrome community and all individuals with Down Syndrome and all individuals that are Differently Abled. I feel like I am giving back to the community and I love the feeling. Right now, I am home for Thanksgiving but I am able to work from my house so it is a win win. Just trying to get over being sick with the 24 hour bug.
