COLLINSVILLE -- An Illinois girl is on her way to becoming the next teen sensation. 17-year old Karrie Brown has Downs syndrome. She created her Facebook page and got 11,000 "likes" in a week.

It prompted her favorite clothing store, Wet Seal, to offer her a modeling job. Last month, she was featured in J-14, a magazine filled with teen celebrities. The new teen model will be walking the red carpet at a pre-Oscar event in LA this weekend.
