Inspirational Teen With Down Syndrome Starts a Modeling Career

An 18-year-old Australian teenager with Down syndrome is shaking up the world of modeling. 

Her name is Madeline Stuart, or "Maddy," and she has been working out for over a year and a half to ready herself for a modeling career, having already lost more than 40 pounds.

She wants people to know she sees her genetic disability as a gift.

Her mother says, "I think it is time people realised that people with Down syndrome can be sexy and beautiful and should be celebrated."

Maddy's story has been making the headlines and Australian fashion brand Living Dead Clothing has already hired her. They start shooting very soon. Smart move! Congrats, Maddy!

To keep up with Maddy the model, follow her on Instagram and on Twitter.
