I am the youngest of seven siblings! And yes, every time we act out The Sound of Music they make me play Gretl.
I am a communications major and acting student, recently starring in my first television series and have great hopes of becoming a professional actress one day!
I have a brother with Down Syndrome who is my greatest fan! He has turned me into an outspoken advocate for the protection of his rights to show the world that a brother with Down Syndrome is the same as any sibling.
