Disabled top models hope for successful careers

Britain's Missing Models: Sophie, Debbie, Kelly, Jessica, Kellie and Rebecca

The Daily Mail in the UK profiled the women from the reality show, "Britain's Missing Top Model" on June 26. They all are hoping for successful careers in modeling due to the show.

The show has eight women with differing disabilities competing to prove to a panel of industry experts that they can be a mainstream model.

"The aim of the series is to challenge the boundaries that seem to exist in the beauty and fashion industries and cast new light on our concept of the ideal woman," The Daily Mail says.

The women have a range of impairments from amputations to wheelchair use.

I posted an article about the show back in March.
