Living on the Brightside

Kennedy Krieger and Circle of Friends are an important reason I have such a full life.

Living on the BrightsideEvery month, I meet my best friends for dinner where we get to catch up with each other. Then we go to Circle of Friends, a part of Kennedy Krieger's Brightside mentoring program, where we learn about friendship and how to socialize with other people. I am 25 years old, and I have Down syndrome, which means that I was born with 22 chromosomes instead of 21.
