Down syndrome doesn’t affect my ability to work

Moira Rossi has been a role model since she was a child, reports The Florida Times Union in Jacksonville.

The accomplished 27-year-old has acted in theater, been a public speaker, done nonprofit volunteer work, won a national video award, graduated from the University of North Florida, has two part-time jobs, serves on a state panel and is engaged to be married in 2017.

Now she’s starting her own business.

Rossi recently won a $12,500 statewide competitive grant to start Moira’s Ventures. Her business will create job-training videos and workbooks for people with developmental disabilities.

“I’ve got a full, busy plate,” she said. “I try to make it work.”
