The event has three categories: children, teenagers, and girls over 20.

The main goal of the organizers is to make the youngsters’ dreams come true. Therefore, any girl can become a participant, regardless of weight, height or marital status.

The winners’ awarding ceremony of an unusual beauty contest took place on August 20, 2018, in Portadown (Northern Ireland). And guess what: Kate Grant managed to get the first place in the teens’ category!

The 19-year-old girl with Down syndrome turned out to perform better than 40 other participants from all over the world!

Kate had dreamed of a modeling career since she was 13. Even though her mother constantly sent her pictures to various agencies, the girl was always denied due to her condition.

The poor mother almost lost the hopes to fulfill her daughter’s dream. However, she once published a photo of Kate in her graduation dress and asked the public if her daughter could become a model.

The adorable cutie shared her joy during her victorious speech:

The true beauty is in kindness, sympathy, and inner spark! If the judges saw this inside me, I am extremely happy!

The victory will give Kate an opportunity to participate in prestigious photo sessions and visit various events throughout the year. In addition, the girl will also become another judge of the contest the next year.

It looks so adorable when the kids’ dreams come true! Fortunately, the pessimistic doctors were wrong, and now Kate has opened many roads in her life for future progress.
