Margot’s Moment

Margot works at Special Olympics International. While driven by the mission of the movement, she did not have a personal connection to the cause. That was until she was pregnant with her first child and found out she was diagnosed with Down syndrome. Today, after serious medical complications, Margot’s daughter Hannah is healthy and brings so much joy to Margot’s family. Throughout the video, Margot reflects on the hopes and dreams she has for Hannah: to be included, to have best friends and to have a positive childhood.
