By host - stella.cairns
Shy AnnCatherine Heigl, who has Down syndrome, shocked her family when she came home one day saying she wanted to become a cheerleader. Known as ‘AC’, she had already exceeded expectations playing tennis at her high school, but always said she hated being in front of crowds. Now 20, AC, from Indianapolis, USA, has made a huge leap in overcoming any nerves about big audiences. Her family believes she has become the first ever collegiate cheerleader with an intellectual disability.

That’s amazing even if I’m not a cheerleader. I didn’t make the cut.

She's really good! Nice to see that her position on the cheer team isn't out of pity. She should be so proud of herself and the team she is cheering for should be so grateful that they have someone with special needs egging them on.

It feels like it should be that an extra chromosome gives you an extra super powers. Like more is always better?

Awesome school to support her. Those students won't remember how accurate the cheers were years down the line, but they will remember embracing & including AnnCatherine as a cheerleader.
