To honor World Down Syndrome Day, Olivia Wilde is starring in a touching PSA, which was directed by her Meadowland director Reed Morano.
“How Do You See Me?” focuses on how people with Down syndrome perceive themselves and how others see them. The PSA was made by the organization CoorDown, which helps raise awareness of the genetic disorder.
In the PSA, Wilde is seen acting out fun activities that any young woman would be engaging in while AnnaRose Rubright, a 19-year-old college student with Down syndrome, narrates.
Rubright is heard saying, "I see myself following my dreams even if they are impossible — especially because they're impossible. I see myself as an ordinary person with an important, meaningful, beautiful life. This is how I see myself. How do you see me?"
World Down Syndrome Day takes place on Monday, March 21.
