Dru Presta, 21, is set to change the fashion industry. This girl was born with a form of dwarfism and is 3 feet 4 inches (around 1 meter) tall, but that does not stop her from following her dreams and inspiring people along the way.
From a very young age, Dru was bullied because of her condition, achondroplasia. Dru is the only person in her family with dwarfism so there were not many people in her hometown of Reno, Nevada, that were able to understand what she was going through. However all the mean words did not stop Dru, they made her stronger instead.
She moved to LA and started modeling to break the boundaries of the fashion industry and inspire other people with similar conditions to follow their dreams.
“I want everybody in the fashion world just to be accepted. I want anybody to be able to walk that runway just like anybody else – whether you see them rolling down the runway in your wheelchair or on crutches.”
