Hi, my name is Cameron Gordon, I am 16 years old and I am in Grade 10 at Colonel Gray Senior High School in Charlottetown.
My parents are Catherine MacInnis (Wade Arsenault) and Kent Gordon (Linda Dunning). I also have a little brother Jack and a big sister Jamie.
I love Colonel Gray, it rocks! My favorite subjects are gym and drama. This year I was asked to join the Power Lifting team, I think they wanted me because last year I won a lot of medals with the Special Olympics because I am strong.
My favorite thing to do in the whole world is dance. I take hip hop dance class at Dance Virtuosa and have some great friends there.
I also love basketball and volunteer with the Island Storm!
I love dancing and hanging with my best friend Jacob. I love laughing and making people laugh.
I have Down syndrome, Celiac disease and another disease that is hard to pronounce, Hidradenitis Suppurativa.
Having Down syndrome means that it is hard to learn some things, like riding a bike, skating, reading and writing; but, it doesn’t mean that I can’t do those things, I just need to work really hard and I need help. I am lucky that all the people and organizations mentioned above have helped me succeed in life so far!
That’s why Easter Seals is great! Last summer, Easter Seals helped me have a tutor to help me with reading and writing; and, when I was younger, Easter Seals made it possible for me to go to Camp Gencheff.
I am super proud to be your Easter Seals Ambassador.
I know it is very important because when you donate to Easter Seals, you are helping kids like me in PEI reach our dreams.
My motto is: “HELP KIDS LIKE ME BE THE BEST WE CAN BE!”
