 More than that, she's determined to redefine society's standard of beauty.


In a world where a lot of people think that having the perfect figure, height,  skin, face or makeup is beautiful, Madeline is teaching us that beauty is not all about appearances. It's more than that.


 And that's why she's fast becoming an inspiration to a lot of us women. Not only is she teaching us how to face adversity head strong and with grace, but she's also enlightening us with the importance of acceptance.


For her, "Modeling will help change [society's] view of people with Down Syndrome. Exposure will help create acceptance."


And true to her words, she's showing us that people with disabilities can do anything, can be empowering contributors to society. We just have to give them a chance.


So to Madeline, you go, girl!


And for the rest of us women, let's embrace who we are because no matter what race we belong to, what color our skin is or what our body shape looks like,



Enough said.

    She is so inspiring to so many different types of people with and without disabilities! I teach special education n read her story to my students n will b reading it at r next staff meeting. My students have autism n behavior disabilities in grade K-4 n they loved it. We discussed what they want to b when they grow up n I honestly had one student sit at home n get a check in the mail, after hearing made lines story he decided he wants to own a plumbing business with his brother-he’s a huge Mario n lungi fan lol! I just hope Madeline reads this n see how much she’s inspiring people and giving people with all ranges of disabilities hope! Thank u Madeline! Keep it up girlfriend! Your gona keep climbing high as long as u set ur mind to it! Lots of luck prayers n lthoufhts coming all the way from West Virginia!
