Regardless of what nation or civilization you live in, celebrating variety and distinctions among individuals should be a given.
After all, how boring would the world be if everyone looked and acted alike? If you’re stuck, the solution is quite dull.
In recent years, there have been initiatives to encourage inclusion in a variety of settings. Sure, certain sectors have had more success than others, but the overarching message is clear: just because someone isn’t like everyone else doesn’t mean they can’t do amazing things.
Just ask Kennedy Garcia, a newborn child who doctors recommended be committed to an institution. Kennedy, from Colorado Springs, has Down syndrome, and her mother was informed by physicians that she would have a bad quality of life as a result, according to Metro.
They believed she might have to wear diapers as an adult and that it would be better for her health if she was placed in a specialist facility.
Renee, Kennedy’s mother, had already decided to kick them all out of the hospital room. She wasn’t about to give up on her kid, and time has shown that she was smarter than all of the physicians who had advised her.
In today’s world, Kennedy has competed in state-wide dance contests and modeled for leading companies across the United States. She also faced cancer, beating leukemia with steely will and unwavering fortitude.
Renee told Metro, “I was saddened to learn Kennedy had the problem the night she arrived since I had been fed nothing but a horrific, dismal image projected by physicians and nurses who honestly had no clue what my child’s future held.”
“The next night, a fantastic midwife told me Kennedy was gorgeous and looked a lot like her daughter, who had the same problem.”
“The first question I asked was whether her daughter could walk because I had no idea what the condition entailed, and she simply laughed.” Her kid was sixteen, and she could, of course, walk.”
Kennedy has demonstrated that challenges can be overcome. KMR Diversity and Dream Talent Management represent the kid, who has posed for American Girl and Justice Clothing.
She travels to Hollywood and New York on a regular basis to audition for modeling jobs, but she also likes spending time with her Down syndrome boyfriend, Matthew.
Renee had just one view on the physicians who wanted Kennedy institutionalized.
She said, “That’s astounding how naive they were all of them, and it was only 15 years ago.” “I regret wasting time mourning for events like prom dress shopping since I was encouraged to assume that none of the typical milestones would be met.”
Renee and Kennedy now spend their time touring schools, educating children of all ages about Down syndrome and how they may help those who have the illness. Kennedy is swiftly gaining a social media following, with over 70,000 Instagram followers.
Renee told Metro, “We’re all tremendously proud of her and everything she’s accomplished.” “She’s a fantastic young lady, and we’re all fortunate to have her in our life.”
What a wonderful story of overcoming adversity and a little child who refuses to let anything get in her way. Kennedy’s story is very inspiring, and we wish her nothing but the best in the future.
Share this story if you think variety is wonderful and to honor this brave young lady.
