Valentina Guerrero, an adorable 10-month-old girl with Down syndrome, is now the face of well-known Spanish swimwear designer Dolores Cortés’ 2013 children’s swimwear collection, DC Kids. We say bravo.
Valentina’s mother, TV host and producer Cecelia Elizalde told the Down Syndrome Association of Miami how she felt when Cortés told her that they wanted Valentina to be their spokesmodel:
“I was excited, mainly because the fact that they are placing Valentina on a catalog sends a very clear message of inclusion; all children deserve the same opportunities, regardless of their physical, economic, social, racial or medical condition.”
Cortés has also pledged to donate 10 percent of the profits from the DC Kids line to the Down Syndrome Association of Miami.
