October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month! We're celebrating here at Jonas Paul with our #SeeOurShine campaign - we're inviting everyone in the Down Syndrome community to share what makes them shine ✨

Read through a few #SeeOurShine highlights below, then head on over to Instagram to support the stories of a few more of our friends!

NAME: Maggie (this is THE Maggie of Maggie's Be Cafe!)

WHAT MAKES HER SHINE? Maggie has a bright spirit and energy that makes everyone smile. She also likes to be called Margaret, Maggie May, and Mags. She loves the staff at her cafe and loves her friends! Maggie has two sisters, a Golden Retriever named Scout, and loves coloring, gymnastics, and going to Young Life.

We love you, Maggie!

NAME: Kennedy (over at @kennedyjean04!)

WHAT MAKES HER SHINE? Kennedy is an aspiring motivational speaker, model, actress and dancer with Down syndrome. She is especially awesome because, "she was the first model with Down syndrome to work for iconic dollmaker American Girl and the tween fashion brand Justice," as stated in My Modern Met.

We love you, Kennedy!

WHAT MAKES HIM SHINE? Brody is one of the most vibrant, fun, and funny guys we've ever met! Along with his hopes and dreams to be a YouTube sensation someday (we believe it can happen!), Brody loves to take the lead in a good dance party and show off his dance moves (trust us: everyone could learn a thing or two from him).

We love you, Brody!
