If you don't remember Madeline Stuart, allow us to reintroduce her.
Stuart first made headlines this year after beautiful photos of the inspiring model went viral.
It wasn't so much the photos that were special, but rather, Stuart herself: She has Down syndrome.
But Stuart has never let that stop her from reaching for the stars, and her hard work is paying off. She's been working on multiple campaigns over the past few months, but undoubtedly one of the 18-year-old's biggest accomplishments is signing on as a model for the prestigious New York Fashion Week.
Cosmopolitan recently sat down for an interview with Madeline's mother to talk about her daughter's future, her modeling career and what it means to be different in the entertainment industry.
Check out the full interview, and see pics of the rising superstar below.
