This Model With Down Syndrome Rocked New York Fashion Week And People Are Cheering For Her

A real chromosome warrior!

A lot of people want to be in the fashion industry, but it’s not hard to be in one. They put really high pressure and requirements for women to be allowed on catwalks. It is such a narrow way in, but Sofia Jiaru made it. The Puerto Rican is more than just a beautiful model – she’s a Down Syndrome woman who just rocked New York Fashion Week.

Jirau’s career is only going one director after NYFW – up.

Jirau loves modelling and even has her own fashion brand called ‘Alavett. She’s also a young businesswoman who uses ‘I love you’ as her favorite phrase. She sells her designs online from purses to stickers and dreams to be an inspiration to others who are born with the same condition as her.

Honestly, we’re all just so proud of this woman who’s proving her point that with extra chromosomes, you can be extra special.
