Meet Roni: A six-year-old model with Down Syndrome
Roni was conceived via IVF – and her mom’s routine pre-natal tests for Down Syndrome came back as low risk. It was only at birth that her parents learned of her genetic condition.
When she was born, Roni’s parents were told that she may never walk or talk. But, she proved her doctors wrong and grew from strength to strength.
After enrolling her daughter in dancing and acting classes at school, Roni’s mom, Shelley, noticed that her daughter had ‘star quality’…
And, star quality she has!
In addition to rocking the catwalk as a model at London Fashion Week last year, Roni has also acted in children’s TV shows and is currently a River Island Instagram ambassador.
Roni shows that she can have the same opportunities as anyone else – as she should!
