A teenager is now a model for Wet Seal after a Facebook campaign went viral.

Karrie Brown, 17, has Down Syndrome but isn’t letting that stop her. Karrie’s career started with a Facebook post by her mother, Sue.

Sue posted a picture of Karrie on Facebook. Sue’s friends began asking where Karrie got her outfit. She told them Wet Seal had just come out with a line for curvier girls. She also shared with them how it was Karrie’s dream to one day be a model for the clothing company.

After much urging, Sue created a Facebook page called, Karrie Brown – Modeling the Future. It didn’t take long for Wet Seal to hear about the page. The company promised to make Karrie a model if the page received 10,000 likes by a certain date.

The page is now sitting at more than 17,000 likes. Wet Seal made good on their promise and flew Karrie and her family out for a photo shoot.
