Francesca Rausi, the adorable little girl who’s been stealing the hearts of Malta since she stepped out on the runway last summer, has only gone and won the title of Miss Little Christmas!
Quite frankly, this calls for a glass of eggnog (and I don’t care how early into December it is). Just look at her strutting her thang down the catwalk…
Francesca’s awesomeness was picked up by the international press recently after a video of her taking to the catwalk with a number of other differently-abled models went viral.
Her mother, Michelle Rausi, told the media of Francesca’s excitement on the morning of the event – which took place last Sunday – and how seeing her walk with such confidence fills her with immense pride.
“When Ivan called her name as the winner of her category,” she explained, “that was the cherry on the cake – she was so happy!”
Francesca also took home the award for Best Photo in her category, too.
“I can’t explain the satisfaction I get when I see her achieving so much and breaking down barriers for other children like her,” the model’s mother continued.
Well, neither can we, Francesca. Keep reaching for those stars, Miss Little Christmas!
