Madeline Stuart has never allowed her "different ability" to hold her back from her dreams.
As the first professional supermodel with Down syndrome, Stuart has changed the face of the fashion industry with her revolutionary career and continues to advocate for diversity and inclusion. “The different-abilities community is closest to my heart,” she says, and she works to donate to as many charities as possible.
Stuart’s accomplishments have inspired many people, but what inspires her?
In an interview with Iconic, Stuart said, “Life inspires me. I want to live life to its fullest, to experience as much as possible, and to have as much fun as possible on this journey. We are not here for a long time so we should make every moment count.”
