To Taylor Swift:
Hi my Name is Sarah and I have Down syndrome. I want to tell you what Down syndrome means to me because God made us special and to realize that who we are I have story to tell about me when I was school. I was in a reading class mother of a student told my teacher to take me out of the class because I read faster then her kid and called me retorted when I heard it. I was in tears and now that I am happy that who I am and now sit down and relax and enjoy the video!
