A 24-year-old model achieves her goal of becoming Victoria’s Secret’s first Down syndrome model.

I believe we can all agree that fashion designers have always picked stunning, typically beautiful, and physically fit models to model their products on the catwalk and at other less traditional fashion events. These models have established high standards for themselves in order to be more elegant than the typical person, and have intentionally contributed to the creation of a gap between what models and genuine real-life people look like.

owever, as a society, we are progressing year after year, so it’s no surprise that a number of major companies and modeling agencies have lately begun to include a number of differently abled persons as part of their brand, providing more realistic representation on runways and magazine covers.

Today, we’d like to tell you about Sofa Jirau, a 24-year-old Puerto Rican model with Down syndrome.
