By Taylor Anderton, QLD

My name is Taylor Anderton.  

I work at the Gold Coast Hospital as a laundry cleaner and my job is really important.  

I have to collect the used mops and take them to the washroom and put them in the washing machine. When they are clean they go in a dryer.  

I love my job because I make new friends and I’m busy all the time.  I am saving up for a holiday to New Zealand and I want to fly by myself and go business class.   

I am really great at counting, listening and being on time.  

It’s important to give people with Down syndrome a chance because we can do anything if you give us a chance.  It might take more time to learn a job but we can do it!  

People with Down syndrome are great workers because having a job is really important to me.  So I’m going to try my best all the time.  

Having a job makes me feel proud, important and really happy!
