Katie has always dreamed of becoming a model and conquering the runways, and finally, her dream came true. After signing with an agency, she got to walk her first ever show which was a huge success. She gathered the attention of many and was praised for the work well done.

“As soon as she did her first solo walk the whole crowd got up and started cheering for her and calling out her name,” model Krysta Heath said. “In Katie’s words, she just owned it.”

Katie is looking up to Madeline Stuart, another model with Down’s syndrome who has gained fame worldwide and is hoping to follow into her footsteps.

“I am beautiful from the inside and outside and I want to become a model so people can really see who I am,” this incredibly beautiful young lady said.
