A Florida boy with Down syndrome is helping the public see that people like him are more than their disability.
According to KENS-TV, teenage Ethan Holt is living out his dreams of being famous. His first modeling gig with the beachwear company Surf Style around two years ago garnered enough recognition that Holt landed the opportunity to star in several Advent Health commercials.
But Holt’s recent appearance in a Walmart commercial that aired in February likely increased his notoriety. While the Clearwater teen had starred in local advertisements before, the Walmart “think spring” commercial aired nationwide.
“I love being on camera. It’s a lot of fun,” Holt said. “I do the work. I do all of that. I listen to everybody and do all of that.”
