Woman Bullied for Her Very Dark Complexion Becomes Fashion Model

November 02, 2016

19-year-old Khoudia Diop is from Senegal. She said all her life she had received many hateful comments about her extremely dark skin tone, such as "Midnight" and "The Blackest Girl". She initially tried to stand up to her bullies but in time, learned to just block them out. 

She's now living a wonderful life as a fashion model in Paris. She now uses her platform to inspire others to embrace their differences, not hide them. "If you're lucky enough to be different, don't ever change."

It's amazing how your outlook can change once you choose to see the positive in a situation!
