I usually watch some movies and read a book and chill out with my manager (mom).

    • Lauren:(On her web series "Leader of the Pack") I'm so excited because this show is about a boy with Down syndrome and all the people in it are a little different. Sometimes when I look in the mirror I see Down syndrome, but when all of the people that are acting with me are a little different, then I don't just see DS, I see just me,

    • Lauren: It's really hard for me when people see me as a Down syndrome kid. I want them to see me as typical.
