Young Maltese model, Francesca Rausi, gets a mention on PEOPLE magazine!

Francesca is on fire this week!!!!

First it was Metro writing a feature about her on their news portal site, then it was her winning Miss Little Christmas … and now, a feature of PEOPLE magazine.

The article describes Francesca as “a four-year-old girl from Malta [who] brought smiles to the faces of onlookers at a recent fashion show — but none wore a bigger smile than her.”

Oh my god! And they even posted 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.”

As if that wasn’t enough, the one and only Mario Lopez (!!!!!!!!) commented on the post with the word ‘beautiful :)’.

We are so proud of this cutie who’s making a name for herself and Malta with her cuteness overload and mean cat walking skills.

Keep it up Francesca. You deserve all the recognition in the world!
