ADRIAN CAN’T COOK with Simone Erdedi – Episode 4
December 4th, 2013
My sister Simone is an inspirational and fun-loving girl.
I adore everything about her and I’m so thrilled that she is one of the great guests on ADRIAN CAN’T COOK.
Simone is a 26 year old girl with Down Syndrome. She jokes, laughs, cries and gets sad – just like any of us. She has shows she loves, singers she adores and loves celebrities.
She is just a down-to-earth person with a huge heart of gold.
Though very quiet and shy, Simone still shows off her talents in the kitchen and teaches me a yummy sweet recipe she learnt at her Disabilities Centre.
I hope you enjoy watching this as much as I did filming it. I hope she inspires you as much as she does me.

My Amazing Sister

Looking back at old photos reminiscing.
Look how adorable my sister Simone was… and still is!
So cute and such a happy being. If only the population of the world were more like her.
Simone’s Celebrity Birthday Video – by Adrian Erdedi
May 18th, 2011
On the 25th of April, it was my little sister Simone’s birthday.
I spent a couple of months getting footage together of people she knows and loves wishing her a happy 24th birthday. I gave Simone the video, and she absolutely loved it – she was beside herself.
She is a smart little Down Syndrome girl, she’s very clever, she’s fun and most of all, she is lovable. She loves celebrities, she loves television, she loves movies and most of all loves music. So I made sure I asked the people who will make her smile.
I never planned to make this video public, but I thought it would be a great way to raise awareness about Down Syndrome and urge that everybody does their bit to help these beautiful people feel part of the community. If you want to donate money to the Down Syndrome Association in your state, that too would help tremendously – aiding the people who aren’t as lucky as my sister having a loving home and family around her all the time.
A massive thankyou to:
Simone, we all love you very much and we all hope you had a wonderful birthday!
Love Adrian xox
The Specials – A Very Special Series Of Very Special People
September 24th, 2010
As most of you would know, Vimeo is another video search engine, like YouTube. Vimeo currently has a range of videos which are finalists in a few different genres, one of them being ‘Series’.
The finalist for this is “The Specials”, a reality video series of life inside a special needs home in the UK. There is a big house in Brighton, with 5 Down Syndrome adults living together with the cameras following them around capturing everything on their day to day life including love, heartache, new flatmates, dealing with all the things “normal” people deal with.
I have now become addicted to this series, I think it’s absolutely remarkable and these guys just constantly make me laugh. They are funny, sweet, cute and so kind to each other (sometimes!).
Please check out the video below, these are episodes 1 – 3.

I’m Proud Of My Down Syndrome Sister…
April 28th, 2010
My sister Simone with her idols from Home & Away
On Anzac Day, my little Down Syndrome sister Simone turned 23 years old.
One of her presents from a relative was a brand new mobile phone – her first one ever.
I’m so proud of her because she has learnt to use this phone, learnt on her own or with little instruction how to type messages, call, lock and unlock and play games.
Something like that is simple and easy to people like us, who don’t have a disability – but for kids with disabilities, something as simple as turning on a mobile phone can be almost or completely impossible.
She is such a smart, clever girl, who has done me and my family so proud – especially over the past year after she went through radiation therapy numerous times and an operation. She is strong and still remains a happy girl every single day.
I love the fact I can now SMS her and it completely brightens up her day.
Down Syndrome people are the kindest and most gentle lovable people. You will see them cleaning up your tables at McDonald’s, or looking after the floor at the gym or working in somewhere like Lowes or another department store. Do them a favour and say thank you, or hello – you have no idea how much one simple word means to them. Alot of people are frightened to speak to these people, but they understand everything you are saying and would love nothing more then to interact with you. So say hello!
Simone – you make us all proud. Happy Birthday!
