AC­TIVIST-EN­TRE­PRE­NEUR

From the very be­gin­ning of A&E’S “Born This Way,” an un­scripted se­ries about the lives of young adults with Down syn­drome, lead cast mem­ber Bom­gaars says she knew she would build a plat­form around ad­vo­cacy. She pro­duced a video called “Don’t Limit Me,” and has launched an en­trepreneurial and ad­vo­cacy ca­reer with her web­site, Me­gol­ogy. On Me­gol­ogy, Bom­gaars teamed up with San­rio to pro­duce her own fash­ion line. “I want to in­spire other peo­ple like my­self, peo­ple with Down syn­drome, that we can be our­selves and do what we want,” Bom­gaars says.
