Steven from Born This Way on A&E


Steven is perceptive and insightful, often the thoughtful voice of the group who can articulate exactly what everyone needs to hear. He is a huge movie buff with a near encyclopedic knowledge of Best Picture winners.

Unique in the group, Steven has a rare form of Down syndrome known as Mosaic Down syndrome, meaning not every cell in his body carries the extra 21st chromosome. As such, he doesn’t have all of the same characteristics of a typical person with DS.

Growing up, Steven often felt like he was somewhere “in the middle” and strives to fit in.
