Hi everyone – this is Caleb! He’s an energetic 13-year-old living in Florida, USA. He happens to have Down syndrome, but that doesn’t stop him from living his best life. Always on the move, he is a student, an athlete, a cook, model, dancer, and most importantly, a loved family member. Caleb is in 8th grade at his school and he participates in many clubs and after-school events there. He also participates in a number of sports throughout the year with our local Special Olympics team, including Equestrian, Track, Swim, Golf, Bowling, Softball and Basketball.
Caleb loves to cook! and can be found most evenings helping Dad out in the kitchen at home, or helping Mom learn how to cook. He does a FB Live each Friday on his Page where we make fun and easy recipes. He has been on the Cooking Stage at the Southern Women’s Show with Dad – “Cooking with Caleb” and was on the Today Show (Jan 2020) featuring the cooking kit program Raddish Kids. He also has his own You Tube (Caleb’s ds Crew). Since COVID, he’s led a number of groups in cooking events via Zoom.
He’s been modeling since 2016 – both runway and print, and is signed with a few talent agencies (California, New York, Florida) and has filmed a commercial for Disney. He was featured in Vintage New York magazine in 2017 as one of the “new faces changing perceptions” about Down syndrome. He loves to dance on-stage and has performed in front of hundreds at Talent Shows. He loves traveling and has been to Italy, Greece and the Caribbean many times. He loves his family and is passionate about giving back to his church and community. “Let’s Do It” is his motto, and not much stands in his way!
