Lets get Downs to Business – Part 2

Hi everyone!

I just came accross this inspiring video about British entrepreneur Laura Green (from Runcorn, UK) who is a woman with Down’s Syndrome and has been running her own fashion business for several years now. In my last post on this topic, I already wrote bout about two young girls who are working with their relatives to design suitable clothes for people with Down’s. https://fashionblogga.wordpress.com/2014/11/23/lets-get-downs-to-business/

 

Have a look at what the BBC wrote and click on the link to see the interview! (unfortunately BBC won’t let me embed the video)

This is what the BBC wrote:

“I didn’t want to work in Asda. I wanted to run my own business,” says 28-year-old Laura Green. The young entrepreneur from Runcorn, Cheshire, says that because she has Down’s Syndrome people didn’t think it was even worth talking to her about her future.

“There was no career planning at school for me. I was just killing time until I was moved onto the next step in the system. After three years I said ‘no more’ and I left.” With that, Green spent time with family and friends trying to work out what it was she wanted to do with her life.

“I decided that I wanted to work in fashion. Not for someone else but I wanted to set up my own business selling fashion accessories. So that’s what I did.”
