About this Event

Canterbury Down Syndrome Association presents - Shéri Brynard - Limitations Live only in our minds.

Shéri Brynard of South Africa is the only person with Down syndrome who has a tertiary teacher’s diploma, without any amendments been made to the course or special assistance, in South Africa.

With this presentation, Shéri will speak about how she grew up as a girl with Down syndrome in South Africa. She will explain how her determination to make the best of her situation helped her to cope with her disability and how she, with the help of her parents, handled the preconceived ideas of the people of her time. After she had the opportunity to address the different committees of the United Nations in New York and then again in Geneva, Sheri’s message has changed from being only motivational to being much more assertive in her quest to campaign for the rights of all people who may be perceived as being different.
