Kate Grant is an Irish beauty queen and model, who holds the Teen Ultimate Beauty of World 2018 title.
Kate Grant, 19, competed against 40 other contestants and won the Teen Ultimate Beauty of the World pageant. She is the first international pageant winner with Down's Syndrome.
Grant found the pageant after her mom posted a picture on Instagram of her that went viral. The photo was asking whether followers thought Grant should get into modeling. Ultimately, the photo was seen by Ultimate Beauty of the World pageant director, who reached out to Grant to come compete.
Grant has appeared as a model in Belfast Fashion Week. She is an aspiring model and hopes to teach others with special needs that, "the true meaning of beauty is who you are, not what you look like." She loves fashion and hopes to do more modeling in the future.
