Some people incorrectly believe that people born with Down syndrome cannot function independently or contribute to society, but Stephanie Handojo has shown that she, like every other person born with Down syndrome, is very special, and more than capable.
On the surface,
the 20-year-old looks like an average person with Down syndrome, but
beneath the exterior that sometimes people judge her on, she is an
extraordinary girl. She has plenty of talent and has already achieved tremendous things.
Her latest achievement is being selected as one of torchbearers in the run-up to the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
The multitalented girl flew to Britain last month to undertake her leg
of the torch relay in Nottingham, London. She was chosen from over 12
million candidates from all around the globe to carry the torch, due to
her amazing achievements in sport and other fields.
