People with Down syndrome are creatives and authentics!

Down syndrome, also known as Trisomy 21 or Mosaicism (both are types of Down syndrome, which accounts for 95% and 5% of the cases respectively), it is usually caused by an error in the cell division. So in every cell in the human body, there is a nucleus, where genetic material is stored in genes, and those contain - typically - 23 pairs of chromosomes (half of which are inherited from each parent). Down syndrome occurs when an individual has a full or partial extra copy of chromosome 21, but the real origin of the cause is still unknown. Today we know that 80% of children with DS are born to woman under 35 years old. Then, on average, 1 in every 700 babies is most likely to have Down syndrome.

I already met someone with Down syndrome and, during my life, I always had distant contact with some others. I never saw them as different or with big problems in life. They might have a lower IQ or a slightly different physical aspect, but that doesn't - or shouldn't - mean anything, since they can be beautiful and incredible. In fact, they are! They are most likely to be persistent and to show that they can do things too. They are like us and we are like them. They can also be super very creative, talented, authentic, special!

The Guardian came to prove with a fantastic video recorded in Barcelona, in a creative design studio called La Casa De Carlota. You will be astonished - as I am - by this incredibly talented people. Prepare yourself, have a look and enjoy because the process and results are simply fantastic. Also, you can check their website by clicking on the links below.
