Irish writer, activist and broadcaster Sinead Burke is fast becoming one of the nation's biggest stars. She most recently became the first-ever little person to grace the Met Gala red carpet along with some of the most famous faces in the world, while she also appeared on the cover of the September 2019 issue of British Vogue.
Last month she launched her podcast series 'As Me with Sinéad' where her guests have included the likes of Victoria Beckham and Jamie Lee Curtis.
To top off a great year, Sinéad appeared on 'Late Night with Seth Meyers' last night. The 29-year-old Dubliner talked about her experience of growing up as a little person and how she felt excluded from the fashion industry because of it. She went on to start a blog about it and is now a major advocate for disability and design.
Em, so I have some news.
Tomorrow, I’m going to be a guest on @LateNightSeth to talk about my new podcast, ‘As Me with Sinéad’.
I can hardly believe it. I am very nervous but also disgustingly excited. pic.twitter.com/Tu8vwUZn4j

Sinéad co-founded the Inclusive Fashion and Design Collective (IFDC) with the US disability advocate Liz Jackson in order to "challenge designers who traditionally haven’t been thinking very diversely, to work with people with disabilities".
Well, that was incredible and unforgettable.
Thank you @sethmeyers and @LateNightSeth for your kindness. I loved talking with you about my advocacy work in fashion and design, and my new @LemonadaMedia podcast, ‘As Me with Sinéad’.
P.S. Look at *that* footstool. Sensational. pic.twitter.com/QANGGtC77W

In her interview with Seth Meyers, Sinéad chats to the host about her achievements to date and comes across as incredibly smart and charming.
