WDSD Spotlight – Sam Roach

It’s March & you know what that means? We’re kicking off our #WorldDownSyndromeDay celebration countdown! Let’s show our members some love!

Hi! My name is Sam. I am 25 yrs old. I love to sing and act. I have a boy band called Backstreet Dreams. I am missing my favorite program at DSL, the Adult Day Academy so much. I can’t wait to get back with Mr. Ethan and all my friends, and teachers to continue to learn new things and get hugs. DSL truly makes a difference in my life!

#WDSD #321 #DSLKindnessWarrior #TheLuckyFew
