My Story

Hi Everyone,

 

I’m Flynn Laker. I am 17 years old and I live in Invercargill, New Zealand with my Mum and Dad, my sister Meg (who goes to university) and dog Hugo. I go to SIT Tec which is run by Ruru School, I love my friends and teachers and we do amazing stuff eveyday - I just love it there.

 

I’ve got Down Syndrome, but that’s no big deal because I can do anything. I’ve always wanted to be the boss of my own company.  I started the company in March 2018 with the help of Meg, and my cousins Georgia and Nic Popham.  I now run the company with my assistant Sherene Frisby who has been my Nanny since I was a baby.

 

Some people said I wasn’t ready to be the boss of my own company but I told them what I always tell people “I was born ready”.

 

With Flynn’s Sox I’m learning all about all kinds of things, and also donating some money to charities that have helped me along the way, which is sweet.

 

I do hope you like Flynn’s Sox, and thank you very much if you have bought some - your sox rock.

 

Flynn
