Easter Seals Ambassador 2018


We are so thrilled to announce that the Easter Seals Ambassador for 2018 is our Brayden White from Georgetown School. Here is Brayden’s story:


Hi,

My name is Brayden White and I am a grade 7 student at Georgetown Elementary.  I am very excited to be the Easter Seals Ambassador for 2018.

My motto:  “BE BRAVE! NEVER GIVE UP!”

I live at home with my Dad, Melvin and I have a brother, Keighan and a sister, Alysa.

Georgetown Elementary is great.  It is small and everyone knows me.  I get to be with my best friends every day.  Everyone is my best friend.

I have three teachers, George Trevor (he is my principal), Darlene Bradley and Carol Anne McLeod.  They help me learn better every day.  I am learning lots because of them.

I love to play sports.  My favorite sport is hockey, but I like basketball and soccer too.  I love to go to the horse races and my favorite driver is Marc Campbell.

I am very good at helping my dad.  I always put away my clothes and listen really well.

I have Down Syndrome. I know that I learn slower than most people, but I am smart and I learn the same as everyone.  It just takes me longer.  I am just like you.  I am no different.  My dad always says that someday I will be able to live on my own and have a job.

I like to go to camp.  I went to camp for a couple years at Camp Gencheff.  I had fun but missed my dad.

Thank you all for helping Easter Seals.  It means that other kids like me can go to camp and that we can do special things.  You are part of our family too.

Thank you!

Brayden White
