It means so much to me to be part of a team. I love coming to college and work to see my friends and be part of a social enterprise. One day, I would like to work in an office as part of a team. Together Academy gives me great training towards this goal.

I really love the staff at Together Academy. I enjoy being the front of house when working in the café so I can greet customers and make them feel welcome. I have a busy life, and the experience and training I receive in the academy helps me meet my goals.

A goal in my life is to be an advocate for people like me. Together Academy is helping me find my voice, and has given me the chance to speak up and state my needs. The college and café programmes have opened up doors for me, and I hope they show people how capable people with Down syndrome are. We can do anything.

I love Together Academy. Seeing my friends here every week, and welcoming people into the café is something I really enjoy. One day, I hope to work in an office, or maybe a café. Someday, I may even study to be a barrister or politician.
