My name is Rita
I have Down syndrome. I look different. And I see things in a different way.
I have a job in the Lemon and Allspice Cookery. I do yoga and folk dance classes. I play music and act in plays. And I’m trying to learn sign language.
But I like making art best of all. Art is beautiful and I have a lot of fun making it.
Here is where we will feature some of my friends who are great artists.See Their Art
When I’m not making art, I do lots of other things. I work in the Cookery. My yoga and folk dance classes are where I meet my good friends. We move around and do cool poses. I also like playing music. And drama because we get to wear different clothes and pretend to be someone else. Sign language is hard to learn, but I practice to get better.See My World
