I’m THOR. Yes, really. Having Down Syndrome hasn’t stopped me from changing the world. How do you leverage your everyday superhero powers?
Who am I, well, I am Thor, and yes, that is my real name. I have Down Syndrome, and being born with this gift, it also gave me a purpose: to be the hero I need to be, sharing my love, spreading my laughter and inspiring all those I meet, one act of random kindness at a time.
In 2016, I met Chad Cavanaugh, @grunt1bcomics, the creator of the comic Radgod, where I was introduced as Halfthor, the first Down Syndrome lead character ever in a comic. The story is an awesome epic adventure of Viking heroes saving the world from the evil Jotnar, where you can watch me kick some troll butt!
Whether I am in action on the street or promoting my brand Always Be Thor at conventions and social events. I do everything I can to share my story and spread the word. There is a hero in all of us…it’s up to YOU to bring ’em out!
