Youth of Macedonia #4

“They call me Nino but my mom calls me a “Gift from God”. I am 25 years old and I was born with Down Syndrome. I finished elementary and high school attending regular classes. After volunteering for three years, I now work at the Ministry of Labor and Social Policy. I love sports and I regularly practice boxing. Do I have problems? Of course I do, who doesn’t. Maybe a bit more than others, which is normal. Do I feel accepted? Not by everyone, but that’s also the case for everyone else. Life is a struggle, for me a bit harsher. But that’s it!”
