Chelsea Werner, a 25-year old girl from California, was born with Down syndrome. At the age of 4, Chelsea took up gymnastics to help her increase muscle strength, as people who suffer from Down syndrome experience low muscle strength.

Through hard determination and work, Chelsea proved to be a great talent for gymnastics and won four Special Olympic championships.

She has been doing gymnastics for a long time and it helped her to work hard and to be disciplined. Moreover, she considers that she gained confidence through gymnastics.

Recently, Chelsea has become a model in an international agency, which is trying to encourage people to love their bodies and not to be ashamed of it.

Chelsea wants to be the voice of the people with Down syndrome. She considers that people with Down syndrome are not represented enough, and they could not show how capable they are.

Also, Chelsea`s applications to fashion agencies have been turned down several times. However, she did not give up and continued pushing. She had enough confidence and believed in herself.

She had a lot of challenges in her life, but she never gave up. She is a very positive person and she does not see things as limitations.
