RJ Peete will let nothing stand in the way of his dreams. The oldest son of Holly Robinson Peete and Rodney Peete is taking on the world of fashion as a model.

Photographer Andrew Macpherson recently chose RJ to model in a feature spread about living with autism. “In front of the camera [RJ] was bright, alive and exceptionally self-aware,” photographer Andrew Macpherson wrote on Facebook after the shoot. “His ability and history of giving voice to those less fortunate than himself is what inspired me to call our story The Ambassador,” Macpherson added.

Holly Robinson Peete was also impressed by her son’s skills. “You think you know your kid and his limitations, then BAM! He just surprises you,” she told media. “One of the most gratifying things about being a mom is when your kids exceed your expectations.”

RJ celebrated his eighteenth birthday last October. He and his twin sister, Ryan, are the oldest out of Holly and Rodney Peete’s four kids.
