Bullied Teen Designs Her Own Prom Dress To Fight Bullying And Becomes Prom Queen

18 year old Kyemah McEntyre was bullied at high school. However, when it came to her graduation, what she had experienced didn’t cause her to sink back into her shell – instead, she used it as fuel to create something awesome, and the result was that she made a huge statement, and even became the prom queen! Kyemah used her African heritage and her creative talents to create a stunning dress inspired by her African roots. Here is what she said about the experience: “I am 18 years old and I am undoubtedly of African Descent. As an artist I have a completely different point of view compared to most individuals. I am extremely analytical and observant…This is for always being labeled as, ‘ugly’ or ‘angry’. Thank God, stereotypes are just opinions.”
