Achieving Her Dream

Another person with Down syndrome is achieving her dream.

I posted about Tim Harris fulfilling his dream of opening his own restaurant.

Now comes Thalia Arbelaez - an 18 yr old teen who has Down syndrome is living her dream of being a dancer.

She is a dance student at the Patel Conservatory and is being recognized internationally for her dancing and modeling accomplishments. Next month, Thalia will dance in Argentina at the Down Syndrome Association of the Republic of Argentina's Family Day Event in Buenos Aires. She recently modeled in Denver for the Be Beautiful, Be Yourself Jet Set Fashion show I posted about below.

And to think that when she was born doctors told her parents she may never walk.
