One of Kate’s biggest accomplishments was her recent appointment as a brand ambassador for Benefit cosmetics. What makes this appointment especially meaningful is that Kate is the first person with Down’s Syndrome to represent the cosmetics giant. Kate was chosen for this role after she received so many positive comments on an Instagram post featuring a picture of her wearing Benefit eyeliner.
