- Clara is a four-year-old girl with Down's Syndrome - but she's a model who has defied her doctor's statement of not leading a normal life
- Twenty-one hours after she was born, Clara was diagnosed with the condition
- Clara's doctor said she would be overwhelmed by lifelong medical conditions including heart problems - but the young girl is doing just fine
A four-year-old girl born with Down's Syndrome has become a model after being told that she would not lead a normal life.
The girl identified as Clara was diagnosed with the condition 21 hours after she was born. Her parents were also told that she would be overwhelmed by lifelong medical conditions including heart problems, Metro reports.
Legit.ng gathers that Clara's parents Meryn and Duncan were shocked when they were given the bad news.
The four-year-old girl is, however, defying the odds by not just walking and talking, but modelling for catalogues and campaigns too.
Clara has an agent already and has so far modelled for clothing range Little Green Radicals and advertised for a Down’s syndrome campaign.
Meryn said Clara does not have many of the other conditions doctors warned she may develop.
She said: "They present it as a really negative thing and just talk about a lot of medical issues.
"When you’re just presented with a long list of problems that your child is going to have, it’s very scary and a terrifying thing to hear."
In other news, a video of a doctor dressed like a movie character, Batman, has since gone viral.
The emotional video shows a doctor determined to fulfil his ailing patient's dream of meeting Batman.
In the one minute video shared on Twitter, the doctor and the young boy's mum are seen walking the hospital corridors alongside him with a drip.
The doctor bade them goodbye only to reappear through a different door dressed in black outfits that represent the superhuman, Batman.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a man in the United States identified as Jason Garrett displayed a rare show of love for his 12-year-old dog Lola who needs to undergo major surgery for pre-heart failure.
Garrett has drained his retirement savings to raise $45,000 (N16.3m) for the procedure, which is said to be 90% success rate.
