Woman who got bullied because of her skin color is taking over the modeling industry

The 19-year-old beauty Khoudia Diop is stunning! Still, she got bullied a lot when she was younger because of her dark complexion. But that didn’t stop the Senegalese girl to pursue her dream: becoming a model. A supermodel! Eat that bullies.

On Instagram, she has no less than 240.000+ followers. With them, Khoudia not only shares pictures of herself but screenshots of racist reactions as well. ‘‘I would have bleached my soul at least three times if my skin was as dark as hers’’ someone wrote, ‘‘because I would scare myself every time I would look into the mirror’’. Khoudia reacts brilliantly to these ridiculous reactions. ‘‘My chocolate colored booty is the first thing I admire in the mirror every morning and I can barely describe how happy this makes me feel. It doesn’t scare me. It’s who I am and I love it.

With her work, the Senegalese model wants to inspire all women of color. ‘‘I want them to know that we too, can do everything we dream off.’’
