Model, Speaker & Dancer

Mikayla Holmgren


Mikayla is a young lady with Down Syndrome who has a passion for dancing and loves to express herself through her dancing. She is a Model, Keynote Speaker, Best Buddies Ambassador, Miss Amazing Queen 

and a Self Advocate.

Mikayla has not let Down syndrome stop her from achieving many great things. She describes herself as “having a little Down syndrome on the side”. This coming from someone who was born prematurely with multiple medical issues and considered very fragile her first year of life.

Mikayla entered her first pageant in 2015 when she won the Minnesota Miss Amazing Jr. Miss Crown. She wanted to do another pageant and entered Miss Minnesota USA in 2017. Mikayla was the first woman with Down syndrome to participate in any state Miss USA pageant. She won two awards that evening. The Director’s Award and the Spirit of Miss USA Award. She participated again this year and won the well deserved Miss Congeniality Award voted in by her peers during the weekend.


This year Mikayla continued in breaking the glass ceiling by being first woman with Down syndrome to make it into the Semi-finals and to win the People's Choice award. 

Not to stay idle for long, Mikayla auditioned for Sports Illustrated, hoping to be the first model with Down syndrome.
