A teenage girl from Colorado Springs, Colorado claims that you can do whatever you want, no matter the circumstances. Kennedy Garcia faced a number of challenges throughout his life, including the doubts and distrust of others who were not always sure they could overcome them. However, Kennedy persevered through everything that happened to him, did everything possible to make all his dreams come true, and set a fine example along the way.
Kennedy was born with Down syndrome and has an extra chromosome. According to the CDC, Down syndrome is the most common chromosomal disorder diagnosed in the United States, affecting approximately one in 700 children. It interferes with the development of the baby’s body and brain during pregnancy. In addition, Kennedy was later diagnosed with cancer. It was clear that he would not always have an easy path ahead.
However, Kennedy’s mother, Rene, always trusted her daughter and encouraged her to pursue all her hobbies. Despite many ups and downs along the way, Kennedy is now doing what he loves and encourages others to follow his example. Today, as a model, actress, and professional speaker, Kennedy inspires people around the world. Despite all this, Kennedy spends time with his most important people, his boyfriend, friends and family.
Kennedy is now a role model, but his life was not always so glamorous. According to the Metro agency, doctors told Rena that her daughter had Down syndrome, that her quality of life was poor and that it would be difficult to raise her as an adult. However, Rene refused to leave his daughter and continued to encourage her desire for the stars.
As Bright Side reports, Kennedy spent a lot of time in the hospital as a child, but he was positive all the time. His mother talked a lot about Kennedy and all the ups and downs he faced today in his successful 16-year career.
“She went through a lot,” René said. “SHe has had over 30 surgeries, was diagnosed with leukemia as a child, and then had surgery for osteoporosis. She has come a long way. She always had a positive attitude and smiled at everything, even when She was very sick or suffering.”
“Today is World Cancer Day! I am a survivor! When it comes to cancer, everything else seems so easy to deal with. In memory of those who lost the battle, support those who are still fighting and those who survived… Raise your consciousness, find a cure, fight!
Kennedy is now a model, actress and professional speaker, and she continues to win. According to Bright Side magazine, she started modeling at the age of 6, and at the age of 10 she starred in the film American Girl. Since then, the teenage girl has continued to work as a model.
Kennedy also has a strong love for dance, something she’s been a part of since she was 5 years old. Renee explained that Kennedy is the only one with Down syndrome on her competition team, and has made great friends through dance. She also has learned how to balance her professional life with her social life, and has even found time for a relationship with her supportive boyfriend.
“Our path has been good or bad, but in 16 years there has been more good than bad,” she said. When she was born and diagnosed with Down syndrome, we looked at her future with a very hazy look … I never hoped for my child, but Kennedy always proved that these doctors were wrong, paving their way. She showed the world what he can do.”
