This Model With Down Syndrome Wants to Change the World

She's proving that everyone really is beautiful

Madeline Stuart is 18 and lives in Brisbane, Australia. She’s an athlete who loves gymnastics and cheerleading, and who loves to be the centre of attention. So, once she began styling her own outfits, she asked her mom to jump behind the lens as she posed in her creations.

She’s now rising to fame, and wants to make sure that everyone, regardless of their body shape or size, gets a chance to model.

“People with down syndrome can be sexy and beautiful and should be celebrated,” said her mother in a press release.
