The event, hailed as groundbreaking, is also part of Scott’s efforts to establish a foundation to teach modelling. It will be extended into a beauty salon where children with different abilities could learn skills and contribute to the beauty industry.
Scott’s mother, Bahia Janodien, said: “Shumeez is taking on the world and, with her confidence, we know she will succeed. She would also like to progress further with learning to read and write, but for this she needs to attend a special school, where costs are very high.”
She said the event on November 4 would feature young women and men.
Scott won the Face of an Angel national competition - Miss DS Ribbon4Roses SA 2017 - in 2017. The event was for young females with Down Syndrome.
