Kheris Rogers is a 10-Year-Old girl who has been bullied by people who called her ugly because she had dark skin. She would come home from school and cry everyday. To make it worse, her teachers added on to her insecurities. She recalled the time her teacher asked students to draw themselves, then handed her a black crayon. “I’m not that dark… I’m brown,” she replied.
It got so out of hand that her mother changed her school and sent her somewhere more diverse.
This Twitter post here is what gave Kheris confidence. With over 30K retweets and countless compliments, her sister Taylor had to help her manage a Twitter account after seeing the difference it made in her life.
We love that she was able to overcome the bullies.
