Today, people from all around the planet are celebrating World’s Downsydrome Day, and of course, we couldn’t help but think of Malta’s very own Francesca Rausi, a 4 year-old model with Downsyndrome that’s breaking barriers and crossing borders with her sweet looks and gorgeous character.
Here are some moments where Francesca Rausi simply stole our hearts.
When she made it onto popular UK News Portals
UK news portal Metro writes an article about our very own Francesca, saying:
“This four-year-old girl is fast becoming a catwalk star. Francesca Rausi, 4, who has Down’s syndrome, looked in her element as she walked the runway during a fashion show for disabled models in Malta.”
People Magazine soon followed with a photo of her on their Instagram, which, get this, garnered 89,000 likes in just 16 hours.
“Four-year-old Francesca Rausi, who has Down syndrome, was all smiles as she strutted down the catwalk at a fashion show for models with disabilities. Her mother said that her daughter would like to become a professional model one day and hopes that Francesca will raise awareness about Down syndrome.”
When she strutted down the runway with an Australian Supermodel
Watch her as she models down the catwalk with an Australian top model with Down syndrome -Madeline Stuart.
Madeline Stuart has appeared on the New York Fashion Week catwalk, and has also walked Paris fashion week, London fashion week, Runway Dubai, Russian fashion week, Mercedes Benz fashion week China and many more.
When she won her first modelling competition!
Just a few months ago, the Miss Junior Christmas competition went down and Francesca Rausi stole the show (even though we had no doubt she would!)
She went home with the title of Miss Junior Christmas, making her parents, and everyone else watching, super proud.
And lastly, Francesca showing us all coughing etiquette during these cautious times
When asked to show everyone how she coughs, Francesca coughs into her elbow, just like health authorities have been advising us to do in the last couple of weeks.
