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.

Everyone has their travel bucket list.

The list of places they absolutely must visit before they die.

There are those, however, who also have a rather different list of destinations.

The places that have no intention to visit.

Be it for safety concerns, language barriers, or simply that there's nothing at these places that calls to them, there are places some wouldn’t dream of spending the time and money to visit.

Redditor TrooperJohn was curious to hear which places were at the very bottom of the list of travel destinations for his fellow Redditors, leading them to ask:
