Episode 2: A Little Something Extra with Amanda Booth


We’re back with our second episode of our video podcast, A Little Something Extra, the first podcast co-hosted by an individual with Down syndrome! In this episode, Nancy and GiGi Gianni of GiGi’s Playhouse are joined by Amanda Booth — model, mom, and advocate. Amanda’s son, Micah, was born with Down syndrome and has followed in his mom’s footsteps in a big way – he’s been featured in numerous campaigns including Tommy Hilfiger and Amazon Fashion. Micah and his mom have also graced the cover of Vogue Living, and were featured in Parents and People magazine, among others! Amanda’s most important mission is ensuring that Micah has a voice and she aims to make sure that differently-abled people are in the media. Tune in to hear more about their story on A Little Something Extra!
