David is the winner of our sock design competition for World Down Syndrome Day 2024.
David's design is inspired by gears.
"For the design of Lots of Socks I drew gears. Gears are necessary for machines to work. They have two main functions: to increase speed or to increase force. Each one fits perfectly with another, and together they are part of something bigger. Many times people may believe that because we have an extra chromosome, because we are different gears, we cannot fit together and make a big change, but this is not true. Together, as a community, we are part of something much, much bigger. Together we increase the strength, like gears in an incredible machine."
