In the world of today, we are slowly becoming more accepting of all kinds of people. The world is no longer as hateful as it was once upon a time. Nowadays, we are bringing people with different identities, sexual orientation, and disabilities into our inclusive world of entertainment, profession, and the society in general. And social media has pushed this inclusiveness in the right path as well by making many people famous through Facebook and Instagram.

The newest social media star is Riley Baxter, a 5-year-old kid with Down Syndrome. He smiles a lot and sends out positive vibes to anyone who meets him, earning him the tag Smiley Riley. Zebedee Management, an agency that brings out different talents among disabled people and tries to create an inclusive environment, discovered Smiley Riley and was awed by his cute smile.
