How a girl with special needs was able to fulfill her cherished dream and become a model.

We still live in a world where beauty standards are quite strict. And even though many people advocate body positivity, they won’t miss discussing a mutual friend’s a few extra pounds with a friend over a cup of tea. It’s even harder for people with special needs. Some people have to catch sidelong glances at themselves, while others may even face bullying . But it’s worth writing down in your head once and for all that every person is beautiful in their own way. Today I share with you a special story that proves that there are no certain criteria for beauty. Meet Jessica in the photo – a Venezuelan model with Down syndrome . The girl showed that a person with developmental disabilities, just like anyone else, can inspire others to follow their dreams.

Jessica Jacinto – model with Down syndrome

Often when we see someone achieve success, we only notice the good parts of their journey. It’s unlikely that anyone takes into account all the efforts that a person had to put in to reach the top. Only the man himself and the people who were with him through thick and thin really know how difficult the real struggle for a dream can be. This was the case with Jessica, a girl with special needs , who was able to fulfill her cherished desire and become a model.

How Jessica started her journey

At the age of 14, when Jessica entered high school, she was already involved in some sports: gymnastics, swimming and track and field, but she was not very happy with them. Then the girl was invited to a beauty contest for girls with the same feature as Jessica. Mom supported her daughter, and they decided it was time to try something new . “I have never seen her happy in any sport. We realized that we were wasting our time. But when I saw Jess walking down the catwalk, I realized that this was her world ,” admits the model’s mother.
