Can-Do-Ability: Answers and Solutions from my personal experiences of living with a disability

Cerebral Palsy Child Model

2 Dec 2013In the past there has been an Autistic model who has covered the front cover of Marks & Spencer which I blogged about earlier in the year.

Now, seven year old, Holly, is the new face of Mini Boden!

Holly has an amazing smile that makes you want to smile.

In the following http://www.aww.com.au/news-features/news-stories/2013/11/seven-year-old-girl-with-cerebral-palsy-becomes-model, Holly’s mother Fiona told the Daily Mail, "Holly has a beautiful smile and modelling is not all about being perfect, so we thought why shouldn't she be considered,"

How true is the quote, ‘it is not all about being perfect’?

To celebrate someone’s uniqueness as opposed to hiding it away is how we should live.

When is Australia going to start using these special, unique individuals for their campaigns?
