Hi there! My name is Annmarie Carrigan. I am a 25-year-old woman living with Down syndrome, but I don't let that define who I am. I grew up in Dallas, and I currently live in Waxahachie in a community called Daymark Living.
I love it here because I am around lots of people, and I am making new friends. I love having a community with people with intellectual developmental disabilities. I didn’t have many friends with IDD before; I only had a handful of friends with IDD. Daymark has changed that for me by letting me be in a community living with people with special needs. Daymark has given me a different outlook on my life, and I have learned to accept living with Down syndrome.
