Ask A Special Olympics Athlete


– Special Olympics USA Games and Microsoft teamed up with KUOW to host
Ask A Special Olympics Athlete, a person-to-person conversation
bringing together members of the Puget Sound community
with Special Olympics athletes. (people murmuring) – [Ben] You’re Devon? – Yes. – I’m Ben. – Nice to meet you. – So what do you think people should know about the Special Olympics? – Put it this way, just
’cause we have a disability doesn’t mean we can’t
compete like everyone else. – Come to a competition and watch. See for yourself what people can do. – And I get excited when they cheer me on. – It’s changed my life for the better, and I am so thankful
that I’m a part of it. – [Woman] What was your life like before? – It’s always been a little uncertain, trying to navigate the waters of life, and so now with it I have
much more confidence, and I’ve been able to branch out and just really be able
to show what I offer, not just from sports but from life. – My coach gave my mom a phone call that by the way, Rebekah
was chosen for nationals. – Yeah!
– Like yeah! Yes! I like it when people actually take time to listen to me, you know? – What do you want people to learn from having USA Games in Seattle? – Acceptance and also
that Special Olympics is for all sorts of people with
all sorts of disabilities, and all sorts of abilities too. It’s not just one thing. – I feel like I’m part of a team, and that they see me for who
I am and not my disability. Growing up, I felt like an outsider, and that no one wanted to sit by me ’cause I have Down syndrome. But I kept all those negative vibes and put it into this big
motivation for myself, so I can keep moving forward and to change their view of what I was. And then all of a sudden,
Special Olympics came in, and that gave me a real boost
of confidence within myself, and it became a family of
friends, which I needed, and that truly just changed
my whole entire life. – Look at us and what we can
do, not by what we can’t do. Don’t just jump to assumptions
or conclusions just because somebody has autism
or Down syndrome or whatever. – [Photographer] Awesome, thank you all. (crew claps) – [Rebekah] Look at what they can do if you give ’em a chance. – [Narrator] Come and
cheer on the athletes July first through the sixth as they compete in the
Special Olympics USA Games. To find out more, go to

    Windows 10 u kullanmak gerçekten rahatlatıcı bir tarafı var
    bilmiyorum neyden kaynaklı ancak yazılım olaraka ve pencere yönetimi olarak sorunsuz! olduğunu farkettim
    keskin kenarlıklar! şeffaflaştırılmış arayüz! bunların hepside tabiki yılların verdiği tecrübe ile alakalı

    bana Windows 3.1 i hatırlattı
    eğer kısayollarda o tarzda seçilseydi! işte o zaman hakikaten profesyonellik gerektirecek hale dönüşürdü!
    bu sanırım bir sonraki Windows ta düşünülebilir

    windows'unuzun nasıl olacağını siz seçin 😉

    bir sonraki Windows seçtiğiniz kadar para öde yöntemi olabilir mi
    mesela
    klavye dilleri dil seçenekleri DVD oynatıcısı yada resim dünzleyicisi yada ofis programları! seçmeli kurulum
    kullanıcı neleri kullancağını seçer!
    Windows ona göre bir fiyatlandırma ödeme sonucu kod gönderir!
    bu kodu siteye girer linkten kendine ait Windows u yükler ve kullanmaya başlayabilir 😉

    ürün geliştirmeyle ilgili dostlarıma tavsiyelerim oldu!
    bunu jest olarak düşünelim!
