Project Description

Brandon is an extremely accomplished young man from Santa Cruz, CA. Brandon is a model, fashion designer and artist. He started a non-profit called 321 Life + 1 Project, which raises money to give those who come from diverse backgrounds, an opportunity to have a new and inclusive experience. After being bullied in the early years of high school, Brandon decided to “blow up” his senior year of high school by advocating for himself, showing people there is more to himself than a Down syndrome diagnosis, and by joining various clubs and activities. As Brandon says, “Down Syndrome doesn’t define who I am. I will do that myself”.

Brandon’s educational goals are to learn how to manage money, become better at writing, speaking and my grammar skills. My personal goals are to continue in the arts; modeling, dancing, acting, graphic arts, painting and web design.
