DSAA Self-Advocate, Miss Charli Webre
DSAA recently interviewed several candidates interested in our new Self-Advocate position. We are so thankful to all the members who applied. We believe that having a Self-Advocate join our Board enables that individual to represent their community more realistically and address specific concerns that are important and make decisions that positively affect DSAA and our community. We are excited to announce that Tony’s successor, and our new Self-Advocate, is Miss Charli Webre!
Charli has been a member of DSAA for numerous years. She was one of the first students to complete the UL Life Program in 2018. She currently works at Kinder Kollege Learning Center, takes hip-hop classes every week and loves to plan parties and other events. As our Self-Advocate, Charli looks forward using her voice to share hopes, dreams and goals of all individuals with Down syndrome in our community.
