A little girl has defied the odds and become the face of a kids fashion campaign.
She is truly warming the hearts of the internet...
There's a problem within the fashion industry.It's been there for a very long time: despite calls for change, the same kinds of models crop up over and over again. Instead of diversity, we see white models with one body type, one skin type, and complexion.
It's a painfully exclusive industry.There are many people across the world, and while every one of us is affected by the fashions we buy, so few of us are truly represented.
It's time to change that.People are asking to see models of varying skin races, models of every body type, and beyond.
People with Down's Syndrome are constantly put down in society.Down's Syndrome is a genetic disorder that is completely impossible to prevent.
It's currently the most common chromosomal disorder...According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every year in the United States, around six-thousand babies are born with Down’s syndrome, equating to around 1 in every 700 babies born.
Some people with Down's syndrome may experience additional medical issues as a result of the extra chromosome.Heart, intestinal, ear, nose, throat, or thyroid issues can sadly come hand in hand with someone who lives with Down’s syndrome.
These factors instantly give people with Down's Syndrome a label...And many assume that these people are incapable of living a life of their own and succeeding... which is not at all the case.
But little Eleanor Manton is here to prove otherwise.
You may remember Eleanor from a viral video back in May.
The clip of her walking unaided for the first time warmed the hearts of the internet.
