Alexandra, “Alex” or “Zy”, as her friends and family call her, wakes up every morning happy and delighted, asking “where are we going?”. She is a 18 year old and graduated from Warrior at Arapahoe High School last year. Alex loves planning her outfits, with a theme of the day, whether it’s camping at Roundup River Ranch, Easter Seals Rocky Mountain Village, or sailing with the NSCD at Grand Lake, Alex is always ready for action. Amazingly, she’s even excited when we go to the doctors, a testament to her wonderful caregivers, nurses, and surgeons, whom have extended and improved Alex’s life immeasurably. Alex particularly loves her sports activities: Global Down Syndrome’s Dare to Cheer Junior Bronco Cheerleaders, Peak Stars Dance, Unified basketball, cheer, and now lacrosse. All these events inspire her playfully steal noses, fingers, and toes of her dear friends and instructors as she awaits for the next run down the mountain in her sit ski, a dance with her peers at Global’s Hollywood Ball, or a cruise down the runway with the extraordinary people that make Be Beautiful, Be Yourself the highlight of Alex’s life.
