Madeline Stewart, a teenage girl with Down Syndrome, recently signed her first major modeling contract.
American sportswear brand Manifesta, which considers its audience all women, regardless of their age and clothing size, invited Madeleine to work as one of the models.
Madeline decided to become a model after losing 20 kg. Losing weight was essential for her he alth and overall well-being.
"Madeline really wants to change the way the world treats people who are different," says the mother of the young model. - People with Down Syndrome can do the same things as everyone else, but at their own pace. Just give them a chance and they will meet all your expectations. I believe it's time to let the world know that people with Down Syndrome can be beautiful and attractive too. I don't want people to tell me sympathy when they find out I have a special daughter.”
