Benefit Cosmetics, a cosmetics manufacturer based out of San Francisco, California, stepped up their game when they hired a 20-year-old girl with Down Syndrome as a brand ambassador.

Kate Grant came into the scene to promote the company's "Roller Liner Liquid Eyeliner", and showed up on their Instagram page on January 2nd looking fierce.


Just look at that face:



Benefit reportedly found Kate after they "discovered Kate by chance in the summer of 2018 when we saw a Facebook video about her journey to becoming a model."

"We fell instantly in love with her," said a representative of the company.

"She embodied everything we stand for as a brand so we knew we had to find a way to work with her."

Kate and her family are thrilled, acknowledging that Kate's journey is blazing a path for others who may not believe in themselves as much as Kate does.

"She is paving the way for people coming behind her," Kate's mom told Metro.

"Kate is aware of that and wants to spread awareness about inclusion for people with disabilities and that is what she has done from the very start. She is aware that she is able to do that in a way some of her friends cannot. She is using her voice for them."





Back in August, Kate also made headlines when she was crowned "Teen Ultimate Beauty Of The World."

She says that she hopes having a platform will re-shape the world around her.








"I want the next generation who have any special needs to know the true meaning of beauty is who you are, not what you look like," says Kate.

"Kindness, compassion and inner ­sparkle, that's the ultimate beauty."


All power, dear Kate. May you slay the modeling world every day for the rest of forever.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
