Modeling in New York is not easy, but she achieved her goal and so, she is so proud of herself, being a model with Down Syndrome, without being afraid of people’s opinions. Her role in our society is very important in the whole world.

She wishes that other people with down syndrome achieved their dreams as she did.
In the presentation of this collection, Victoria’s Secret has tried not to discriminate and to include all the standards of beauty and dispel the stereotypes of society.
