Kheris Rogers was being bullied and teased at school because of her complexion.
Her sister, Taylor Pollard decided to post a picture of her baby sis and it received over 30,000 retweets.
The caption written, “My sister is only 10, but already royalty #FlexinInHerComplexion went viral.
According to Ebony, in an interview her older sister said, “She’s a chocolate girl dressed nice had her natural hair showing I just wanted to put it out there she was flexing her complexion.”
The tweet inspired the clothing line “Flexin’ In My Complexion” and is encouraging many women to feel comfortable in their own skin despite what people may say.
Money earned from this clothing line will be used to further Kheris education and on Sunday she was able to show the world her clothing line at New York Fashion Week in East Harlem.
Kheris has a message to share and said. “Everybody is pretty in their own way. Always believe in yourself; don’t let nobody tell you different.”
Congratulations to Kheris and we wish her all the success!
