About Life with Micah

When Micah was three months old, he was diagnosed with Down Syndrome. His mom, actress and model Amanda Booth, says she didn’t plan on starting an advocacy account at first, posting photos of her little angel on her own instagram for friends and family. Almost immediately, he became a social media sensation, leading to the launch of his own account, managed by his parents. The support received from his Instagram account, boasting 60K+ followers, leading to the young lad netting a modeling contract with his mom’s agency, where he has raised the profile of children born with disabilities. Between his sterling smile and endless charm, Micah has won hearts the world over.
