Video: Woman with Down syndrome speaks out

When New Yorker AnnaRose looks in the mirror she sees a completely normal, beautiful, young woman. She loves life, her family and friends. Like so many others, she works, dances, laughs, and sometimes cries too. But by 1:32 the perspective shifts and the camera reveals how the world views her:

COORDOWN, an Italian Organization for people with Down syndrome, sponsored this video. As part of this campaign, they want to ensure that people like AnnaRose will not be reduced to a perceived disability. Featuring actress Olivia Wilde, this video reminds us that everyone deserves to realize his or her potential.
