We are excited to have a celebrity guest for this year’s Expo, Sean McElwee, cast member for the Emmy Winning A&E television show “Born This Way.”  Sean is 26 years old and happens to have Down syndrome. He is an entrepreneur, creating T-shirts with his funny sayings that he sells at www.seanese.com. He enjoys public speaking, encouraging his audiences to never give up on their dreams. Sean lives in his own apartment with supported living staff that facilitate his independence.  He loves making his own decisions and eating bean and cheese burritos every single day!  He is a self-professed ladies man, a gifted athlete and has dance moves that own the floor.  He has a goal of visiting every state and this will be his first visit to Kentucky!
