I am proud to introduce Jake, a student at Latham Centers. In this first PWS University episode, you hear Jake discussing his talents, friendships with peers, and how it feels to have Prader-Willi syndrome. Jake truly represents the pride and happiness that grows with support of family and staff. Jake clearly discusses the challenges of living with PWS, but when you hear his interview, you see that the positives in his life far exceed the challenges. At Latham Centers, we see this every single day. Not only is it possible to live a full, quality life with PWS, it is happening every single day. When I asked Jake why he wants to be a police officer, he answered that they are always helping people and always there to support people who need help. Listen to my conversation with Jake here:
