Remember the name Sofia Jirau... She has made history as she becomes the first Victoria's Secret model with Down Syndrome.
The 24-year-old from Puerto Rico was tapped to star in the brand’s Love Cloud collection campaign, which aims to “reinforce Victoria’s Secret’s commitment to welcoming and celebrating all women.”
The model/activist described the milestone as “a dream come true” on Instagram and said she hopes it’ll remind others that anything is possible.
“I want to tell the whole world that people with my condition, Down syndrome, inside and out, we have no limits,” Jirau told NBC News.
“People who have Down syndrome like me are capable of getting a job, creating their own business, and working hard like me.”
The "Love Cloud" collection from Victoria's Secret aims to put an emphasis on inclusion and diversity within the brand, and showcase models of all looks.
But how good does Sofia look? Get it, Queen!
