This Teen With Down’s Syndrome Has Signed With 5 Modeling Agencies And Has 65k Followers On Instagram

Published 3 months ago

Georgia Traebert is a 14-year-old girl with Down’s syndrome from Curitiba, Brazil. Some time ago, her mother, Rubia, uploaded a picture of her to social media and what started as a simple photo on Facebook, eventually led to Georgia signing contracts with 5 different modeling agencies. Since then, the girl has appeared in quite a few commercials in her home country and continues to be an inspiration to people everywhere.

In an interview with The Sun, the girl’s mother explained it all started as a joke: “I posted a picture of her on Facebook and it was a hit straight away. The idea was to see how much it can inspire other Down’s Syndrome children.”

“Today she is listed in five modeling agencies but what really worked was Instagram and Facebook. That’s where she became known worldwide.”

So far Georgia has gathered over 65k followers from all over the world on her Instagram account and is becoming a widely recognized model in Brazil. Even though she had troubles fitting in at school as a child, she always loved fashion and modeling and never gave up on her dreams.

“She has just made a commercial for a famous brand here in Brazil and also modeled for one of the biggest jewelry designers in Brazil,” said Rubia.

Georgia’s newfound success has given her a great confidence boost but her mother can’t help but worry about the negative comments that have appeared online: “The hardest part was when I read some people post comments that she is only successful because of her blonde hair and blue eyes – Georgia is a very kind child and very talented, otherwise she would not have come so far.”

“Her biggest dream is to be an actress or a singer, then a model. So, we are investing in drama and singing classes. Who knows? Maybe she will act next.”

“My advice is to never ever give up. Keep fighting and persist in your dreams, for nothing is impossible. Just want, believe and fight to make them real,” said the mother.
