In Screen Rant’s section From The Web, I saw the write-up about the death of a model who was 32 years old. Joanne Borgella was a curvy model who died from endometrial cancer on October 18, 2014. She found out about her cancer prognosis just a year prior to her death. She underwent chemotherapy treatments and had hopes of becoming cancer free, however, that didn’t happen. In Joanne’s memory, her family asked that people spread the word about endometrial cancer.
The modeling world has long been considered notoriously selective concerning the type of people who will be allowed to showcase fashions for all to see. Female models, in particular, are held to a strict standard of thinness, with some models appearing so skinny that it borders on unhealthiness.
However, times are changing, and there is a new face that’s helping to bring in those changes. During the 2015 New York Fashion Week, Jamie Brewer will become the first model with Down syndrome to grace the runway. Brewer has long been an advocate for people with intellectual disabilities, and has also been featured on television in various roles.
This is an incredible turn of events because it will give Brewer the chance to show other young people with disabilities that they shouldn’t let their perceived handicaps stop them from reaching for their dreams. Similar to what crunchbase.com has done for the entrepreneurial up-and-coming.
