Teen with Down Syndrome wants to Model
Madeline Stuart is an 18-year-old redhead with big dreams- to become a model. While many 18-year-old girls have the same goal, Maddy has something that makes her stand out from the other hopefuls. Maddy has Down syndrome.
Maddy’s story is gaining attention in the media, as well as support from people all over the world. Over the past few years, the modeling world has been undergoing a transformation. Waif-like models have been replaced in favor of healthy looking, more muscular models. Plus-size models are even making an appearance. Actual plus-sized models, not an average sized woman that is being labeled as plus. It is time that the fashion industry recognizes that not all women are created equally. It is time to represent the majority, not the minority of women who look like Victoria’s Secret angels.
