Kate Grant is an Irish model from County Tyrone who has always dreamed of making it big in the fashion industry.
Although most young girls who want to be supermodels are not encouraged by their parents, Diedre Grant has confidence that his 20-year-old daughter will succeed.
And as the world of “beauty” reveals colorful faces and body types, Kate Grant’s passion and passion drive her to success.
His last win? A new deal with Benefit Cosmetics, in which she will be the first model the company uses in this campaign with Down syndrome.
The young woman was a model at the British Debenhams store and published news around the world when she won the Teen Ultimate Beauty of the World contest last year.
BBC One Northern Ireland also aired a documentary that followed the model and her mother for six weeks when the young woman went into fashion. True North: When the role model aired, it caught the attention of executives associated with Benefit.
Now her first photo, decorated in the eyes of the company, has received a lot of positive feedback.
This photo appeared on the company’s Instagram page earlier this year with the headlines:
“WING WOMAN WEDNESDAY 💖 Introducing our first #wingwomanwednesday the gorgeous @kategrantmodel 💖 Kate is using #rollerliner in black and it’s got us like 😍 #justwingit #benefit#beauty#eyeliner 📷 Image Description: a photo of model Kate Grant wearing new Roller Liner eyeliner”
The grant agreement with Benefit is a great achievement for the community of people with disabilities, which certainly involves many people.
When we see someone with a disability, the benefits can show us all that big difference.
Grant’s success is also helping other people with Down Syndrome see themselves as part of the beauty and fashion industry.
“She is paving the way for people coming behind her,” her mother told UK’s Metro . “Kate is aware of that and wants to spread awareness about inclusion for people with disabilities and that is what she has done from the very start. She is aware that she is able to do that in a way some of her friends cannot. She is using her voice for them.”
Although she was a model with Down syndrome, she did not allow this to be determined. She is trying to move between being a “model” and being an ambassador for the disabled.
But one thing is clear - it is not the “disability model” but the enthusiasm and courage that will move it forward.
Her mother continued:
“When you are young, you think the sky is the limit and with Kate she does not have the understanding that we have, that there are obstacles in the way. She does not allow obstacles to be in the way or her disability to stand in the way. She would say Down’s Syndrome does not define me — I am Kate.”
Grant continues to model in national fashion shows as well as participate in TV interviews where she encourages young women of all abilities to pursue their passions.

the more we support a variety of people in these roles, the easier it will be for all of us to embrace our own beauty and style.
