7-year-old with athetoid cerebral palsy lands modeling gig

By Andrew Ellis     Nov 12, 2013 in World
London - Holly Greenhow, 7, has athetoid cerebral palsy. She cannot walk or talk, but she has a beautiful smile. That smile landed her a professional modeling gig.
According to The Telegraph, Holly Greenhow is currently featured in Boden's online catalog, a clothing store in England.
It all started when Holly's grandma said that her granddaughter's smile was "worthy of an advertisement," according to The Huffington Post. Holly's mother, Fiona Greenhow, went to talk to Burden which is Holly's favorite clothing store about the possibility. Boden offered Holly a modeling opportunity two years later.
Fiona said, according to Metro News, that:
"Holly has a beautiful smile and modelling is not all about being perfect, so we thought why shouldn’t she be considered. There are lots of things she can’t do and will never be able to do because of her disabilities, so it was really nice for her to have this experience. I hope it will help the image of disabled children and also open people’s eyes to the fact there are lots of children out there who aren’t perfect."
The CEO of Boden, Julian Granville, said that Holly was "charming, a pleasure to work with and look[ed] great in Mini Boden," according to The Independent.
