Don’t change the way I look at the world.
Change the way the world looks at me.
As a 20-year-old young adult with Down syndrome, my mission is to change the world’s perception of the capabilities of people with disabilities. I just graduated from an inclusive high school and received a New York Regents Diploma. I am also an advocate for inclusion in my community. I have many talents and passions just like any of my peers. I aspire to be an actor/model/advocate. I just became an author, writing a book with my sister about my life and the importance of inclusion. I am available for Book Readings/Signings, Guest Blog Posts, Teacher Professional Development Zoom Presentations, Community Appearances, Video Celebration Shout-Outs, and Commercial Modeling.

SuperBrady: A Story of Inclusion
One of Brady’s projects after graduating from high school was to take pictures from his photo library, redraw them and color them on his iPad. He had done so many pictures, it made sense to put them into a book. Together, with his younger sister, they wrote a children’s book about Brady’s life growing up with Down syndrome and the importance of inclusion. It’s available for purchase on Amazon to share with your children and their classmates: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0990784037
SuperBrady in Libraries
Brady and Alexx also hope to get their book into as many elementary school libraries as they can, so young students can be taught how they can become Superheroes of Inclusion!
If you want to help their mission to get “SuperBrady: A Story of Inclusion” into as many elementary school libraries as possible, you can make a donation to their GoFundMe campaign. These donations will pay for the printing and mailing costs of the books so they can be donated and sent to school libraries across the country. Here is the link for their Fundraising page: https://www.gofundme.com/f/get-superbrady-into-school-libraries

Brady was the founding member of the EPIC (Every Person is Connected) Ambassadors in his hometown. The role of an EPIC Ambassador is to be an advocate for inclusion in the community. They actively participate in town and school events in order to shine the spotlight on their abilities and show how inclusion can work more robustly in their community.
