A little girl born with Down Syndrome builds a successful child modeling career.

Grace Isabella Wharton from Cheshire, UK, signed up with a modeling agency a few years ago.

Since then, she has already worked on several modeling jobs for the likes of Disney and CBeebies.

The young girl has also starred in a campaign called, Behind the Scars. She has amassed over 1,000 followers on Instagram.

Despite born with Down Syndrome, Grace doesn’t let her condition define her, with the help of her parents.

Her mom, Cheryl, told a media outlet:

“Grace absolutely loves being in front of the camera. Everyone has always said she’s really cute, and she loves posing.

“She [also] loves showing off her catwalk modeling. She absolutely loves the attention.Grace is definitely one in a million.”

At first, Cheryl felt devastated when she learned that her unborn baby was going to have Down Syndrome. But abortion was never an option for her and her husband, John.

She revealed:

“Of course, I [felt] devastated at first. There’s such a lot of negativity surrounding Down Syndrome. I cried for 24 hours.”

“But we got up the next morning and said no matter what, this is our baby. And from that point on, we have just celebrated everything about her. She is incredible.”

And when the girl was six, Cheryl acknowledged her daughter’s desire for attention.

The little girl loved being in front of the camera.

Cheryl recalled:

“We saw an advertisement on Facebook asking for a model with a disability.”

“We thought, why not? And a couple of weeks later, we were invited to Grace’s first official photo-shoot.”

“She walked into the room and twerked in front of everyone. It was hilarious.”

“Grace was then signed up within a very short space of time. Disney showed interest in her and she’s done work with them, CBeebies and the BBC since. She’s been really busy.”

And Zebedee Management, a company that celebrates models with diversity, now represent the young aspiring model.

The company’s co-founder, Laura Johnson, set up the business with her sister-in-law, Zoe Proctor.

And since formation, their company has made real impacts on the lives of people with disabilities.

Laura said:

“We felt that there weren’t enough opportunities for people with disabilities within fashion, advertising, TV and film and we really wanted to see a change.”

“Straight away, we knew that Grace was going to be amazing in her role. She is such a gorgeous little thing, so smiley and full of confidence.”

“She is definitely one of our success stories.”
