Meet Madeline Stuart an 18 year old model who has down syndrome. She is from Brisbane Australia and has taken over the internet by sharing her inspiring story.  As a result of her down syndrome she struggled with her weight. She was determined to become more healthier by exercising and changing her eating habits. She began swimming, cheerleading, hip hop dancing, and playing cricket. In participating in these activities she lost forty pounds.  Madeline's mother posted a before and after picture of her weight loss on Facebook and it immediately started to get attention. 

After she lost the weight she told her mom she wanted to become a model. Madeline isn't concerned with how she looks she's concerned with how she feels about herself. Her goal is to feel confident about herself. She eventually ended up partnering with an Australian clothing brand called Living Dead. A brand that believes in confidence in women and being accepting of one's body. Just recently Madeline scored a deal with fitness clothing brand Manifesta. A brand that believes all women should appreciate their body no matter what size they are.  You go girl!

Looking in magazines and advertisements you don't see many people with disabilities modelling on the cover. We also don't see many models who have disabilities on the runway. People with disabilities are not given much attention and apparently are just not considered as beautiful as people who don't have disabilities.  Not only is Madeline acting as a voice for those who have disabilities, but she is changing everybody's perception of beauty.  Madeline's mother wants people to know that a child with a disability is not a burden, it's a blessing. Even though learning that your child has disability is not the most happiest of news, Madeline and her mother are the perfect example of making the most out of a difficult situation. Children with disabilities can do what others do,  it just takes more time for them. 

Thank you Madeline for inspiring me but, most of all for making me realize how difficult I am on myself. Imagine how hard life must be for someone like Madeline yet she is choosing to be confident and happy.  Even though she has down syndrome she's following her dreams and is learning how to be accepting of her body. So many of us are critical of how we look,  only when we feel confident about ourselves can we feel beautiful. Hence, we all need to learn from Madeline and never let somebody tell you you can't do something because :
