Jen Blackwell has been celebrated in an article in New magazine as part of their feature on Down’s syndrome awareness week.
The article was written to showcase inspiring women who have Down’s syndrome and also featured successful Australian catwalk model Madeline Stuart and British actress Sarah Gordy, who has appeared in Doctors, Call The Midwife and Upstairs Downstairs.
Down’s syndrome awareness week is taking part this week, from 20th – 26th March and the theme this year is “My Friends, My Community – What it means to be included”. The campaign wants to promote the idea that when children and adults with Down’s syndrome are given opportunities to participate and be included, the whole community benefits. Of course, this is very much in line with DanceSyndrome’s approach and we are thrilled that Jen has been featured in a national publication as an inspirational woman who demonstrates that disability doesn’t have to stop you from achieving your dreams!
