A young woman with Down’s Syndrome is finally about to achieve her dream of becoming a weather presenter in France.

Mélanie Ségard, 21, has always wanted to be a weather girl but always thought it wouldn’t be possible because of her disability.Yet following some help from French charity Unapei, she has since been flooded with offers from national TV channels France 2 and BFMTV.

The charity for people with learning disabilities in France helped Melanie set up a Facebook campaign called Mélanie peut le faire (Mélanie can do it).

Mélanie said: ‘I am different, but I would like to show everyone that I can do plenty of things. I want to prove it by appearing on TV’.
