Peter Johnson, Crocker Intern
Peter Johnson began his internship in January 2018. Peter is passionate about educating people about Down syndrome and would like to spread awareness through public speaking.
When asked why he would like to be the next Crocker intern, he said: “I believe our voices could be more heard to be better included in the community we all live in and share. I want others to learn about what it’s like living with a disability. We want what everyone else wants… to be accepted and treated with respect. We are all capable of holding jobs and getting around our community just like everyone else.”
Peter has been working on an interview project, meeting with self-advocates to discuss various topics, including legislative advocacy, housing, social media, relationships, and education. He is excited by the prospect of a position that would combine many of his passions – advocacy, public speaking, and education.
