About Me

Hi! My name is Val.  I am writing this blog to tell people all about my life. I love my life!

I work full time. I play lots of sports. I competed at the Special Olympics World Winter Games in Austria and brought home a Silver medal in Alpine skiing.

I love to travel. I have been to lots of places, including Austria, England, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Greece, Iceland, U.S., Mexico, Belize and some islands in the Caribbean. I like beaches and I love museums.

I like sports. I do Special Olympics sports. I do alpine skiing, nordic skiing, basketball, soccer, golf and rhythmic gymnastics. I am very busy. I also go to a fitness classes and work out at the gym a few times a week.

I love to dance and I love watching plays.

I enjoy spending time with friends.

In my spare time, I like to play guitar and paint.

I have my own apartment and I decorate it with travel pictures. I enjoy cooking.

I have two older sisters and a mom and dad. My oldest sister, Angela is married to Ollie and my other sister, Jackie has a boyfriend named Brian. =

I have 3 pets: one dog, Merlin and two cats, Joey and Ginny. I love all animals.

So what don’t I like? I don’t like spiders.

Oh, and by the way, I also have Down syndrome but that’s just part of who I am.
