Hello! It’s time for the next installment of Apostrophe magazine.This issue, we’re highlighting Ashley DeRamus.
Ashley designs her own clothing line for people with Down syndrome. She decided to make her own clothing line, because as a person with Down syndrome, she has hard time finding clothes that fit — and being fashionable is high on her priority list!
If you attended the National Down Syndrome Congress last year, you may have had the chance to get a peek at her collection, Ashley by Design. This July, the 31-year-old from Hoover, Al., attended the conference again to give a presentation about employment and equality for people with Down syndrome.
Ashley’s motto is “Don’t let anyone tell you what you can’t do. Show them what you can do.”
Also in the Fall 2014 issue of Apostrophe:
- Bernard Baker of Georgia advocates to end the marriage penalty and for employment for people with disabilities.
- Tim Carter produces high-dynamic range photos (in other words, really cool photos) using his digital camera and Photoshop.
- Google Glass is a tool that helps people with disabilities use new technology, including computers, tablets and smartphones.
