Allow Me to Introduce Myself!
Posted on 03/20/2013
Hello, my name is Jennifer Koley. I’m very glad to be the self-advocate on the board of the Down Syndrome Alliance of the Midlands
I have worked at The Ollie Webb Center as a part-time receptionist about four years. Some of my duties include: answering the phone, making copies, filing, and doing various projects for my co-workers. Working with Ollie Webb Center staff has been helpful to me because they gave me the opportunity to work on my office skills, people skills, and communication skills. They also let me show them what my talents are, and that I’m a hard worker as well. I always believed that if you are doing a task for someone, it’s better to do it right the first time. I also believe if there is something you always wanted to do, don’t be afraid to try it. Believe in yourself and don’t give up. Reach for the stars.
World Down Syndrome Day is on 3/21 to symbolize a third copy of the 21st chromosome in people with Down syndrome. Celebrate the value, acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome on March 21st!
