By Damien Flanagan, ACT

My name is Damien Flanagan.

I work at The Tradies in Dickson as a café and bar assistant.

I love my job because I am doing something useful.

I am really great at looking after the customers.

It’s important to give people with Down syndrome a chance because they can feel useful in society.

People with Down syndrome are great workers because we are loyal, punctual, reliable and hard working.

Having a job makes me feel happy.
