Madeline Stuart isn’t just a model, but the young woman made history as the first model ever to have down syndrome. It was always her dream to become a model, and with the help and encouragement of her mother, this dream became reality. Madeline was insecure about her look and wanted to lose weight, and in 2015 she lost approximately 40 pounds.
With the support of her mother, she opened an Instagram account which quickly became viral. The 23-year old from Australia is now working as a model and has hundreds of thousands of fans on social media who admire her progress and most of all, her courage to overcome insecurities and social barriers.
