Introducing Laura

Hi, my name is Laura Jayne Williams!

I was born in Melbourne Australia, in the year of 2000.

I had surgery on my heart when I was 8 weeks old.

I lived in Melbourne for 4 months until we left for Perth, Western Australia.

I was raised by my parents Marie and Jim.

I have two younger siblings, Alan and Sarah .

I have down syndrome but that doesn't stop me from being who I am.

My interests are watching medical dramas, dance moms and comedies.

My hobbies are dancing and singing, eating out and spending time with family & friends.

I am currently 22 years old and I work in the city at a 5 star Hotel called Pan Pacific Perth. They support me through their open employment program. 

Please help us to grow the platform WA page and my support group page for

young adults living with intellectual disability. 

Thank you for your support and courage. 

Love lots, Laura xx
