A 21-year-old woman with Down syndrome who dreams of becoming a television meteorologist has made her first on-air appearance.

Mélanie Ségard of France was invited to France 2 last week after launching a social media campaign to make her dream a reality.

Mélanie launched a social media campaign titled “Mélanie Can Do It.” With some help from Unapei, Mélanie was able to report the weather on-air for France 2 on Tuesday.

“I’m different, but I want to show everyone I can do a lot of things,” she wrote on her Facebook page.

To prepare for the big moment, Mélanie shadowed  France 2 meteorologist Anaïs Baydemir.

On Tuesday, she successfully delivered the weather with confidence.

“It’s a good reminder that people with intellectual disabilities are just as capable of any other person!” Unapei wrote online.
