JAKE GLEN­NON, 16

First News - - SPECIAL REPORT -

Medal­list Jake Glen­non is the youngest ‘Maka­ton Friendly’ DJ in the coun­try. In­spired by his cousin Alice, who has Down’s syn­drome, Jake learnt Maka­ton, a sign and sym­bol lan­guage, and de­vel­oped a way to in­te­grate it into his per­for­mances. He has opened a new fun world for many Maka­ton users who pre­vi­ously would have been on the side­lines at party events. He was given his award by Adrian Carter from Big Bus Lon­don.
