Popular actress stars in a powerful video devoted to the World Down Syndrome Day 3/21/2016 •

March 21 is the World DS Day which was established to raise awareness for people who suffer from the inborn genetic mutation. It is no mere coincidence that this very date was selected – the syndrome is connected with the 3 copies of the 21st chromosome.

Especially for this day Olivia Wilde, a popular American actress, took part in a touching and impressive video where she plays the nineteen year old student Ann Rose who sees herself as a normal girl and wants to lead a normal life. The question is how WE see the girl.

You are welcome to watch the video and share your impressions!

Did you like the video? Do you know anyone with DS? Do you agree they deserve to be treated as normal people?
