On Many Voices, Many Visions we hear the inspiring story of Leyla Davila of Brockport. The three and a half year-old is making a name for herself in the world of child modeling. She stands out not only because of her beauty but because she has Down's Syndrome, a chromosomal abnormality. Leyla was "discovered" while on a vacation in 2010 with her parents. A woman who owns a fair trade fashion line saw Leyla and asked her parents if she could use photos of Leyla in the clothing line's campaign. The rest, as they say, is history. We'll hear how Leyla's parents hope to use Leyla's budding career as a way to advocate for individuals with Down's Syndrome and dispel myths about the condition.
Plus, learning how to use a computer is intimidating even for people who have some proficiency. It often seems that social media and other technology is solely the domain of those under the age of 30, but there's help for seniors who want to learn but think they can't. It's called "Tech Age" and it's at the Jewish Community Center. It's open to people over the age of 45 who want to learn a variety of computing topics. Two volunteers involved with the program join us with details.
For more information about TechAge at the JCC call 461-2000.
