A force of nature, Demi was born with Down Syndrome in 1995. At the time, her doctors’ advice to the family was to “just enjoy her” and not expect too much. The Kellers soon connected with UCP... and Demi has been proving the doctors wrong ever since. A 2013 Cumberland Valley graduate, Demi participated on her high school water polo and swim teams. She loves to sing, dance, and play piano. She is currently a freshman at Messiah College, where she is studying Health and Spanish, and working in the campus bookstore. She also works at Bamboo Frozen Yogurt Cafe in Mechanicsburg.
Demi’s goal is to earn a college certificate that will lead to a career that combines her love for animals, cooking, and socializing. She has tossed around the idea of developing a business of her own, offering a line of animal treats and maybe a store called Demi’s Doggie Deli. Demi would like to live in her own apartment and get her driver’s license.
