Not Being Held Back By Limitations
By highlighting the accomplishments of people from the Down syndrome community, the National Down Syndrome Society (DNSS) is changing the perception of this genetic chromosome disorder.
The video features a doctor outlining the perceived limitations of someone who is born with Down syndrome. With each limitation presented, someone from the Down syndrome community shows how they have not been held back.
In this moving video, you’ll see a graduate, lobbyist, athlete, business owner and professional actor — all declaring “Not Mine” in response to perceived limitations.
