A few years ago when we did some filming with @channel4
, we met the fabulous Mia.
Mia has Down's Syndrome but having already posed for @girltalkmag
she was a seasoned pro on our shoot, giving us all the poses and showing all the other models exactly how to work the camera❤
Today as we raise awareness on World Down Syndrome day, we are celebrating all these amazing kids just like Mia, who show that an extra chromosome is frankly no big deal!
Mia put in a shift (albeit it a very funny one!) and bought an energy to the shoot that I wish we could have bottled!
I hope one day, Down's syndrome will be so common in mainstream media and advertising campaigns, we won't even need an awareness day!!! It is after all, one extra little chromosome.
Mia, you rocked and your pictures will always be my favourite❤❤❤❤😚
