By Winnie Gaturu

At age 11, Kheris Rogers has already achieved a lot in her life. She is a model, a motivator and a fashion designer. These are many roles for a girl her age but she has handled them with a lot of grace and positivity. You see, Kheris hit a rough patch when she joined first grade. She was one of the few black kids in the school and was constantly bullied by teachers and other students simply because of her dark skin. They would call her mean names and the kids would refuse to play with her. They made her feel different and above all, less human. This made her cry constantly and even prompted her to begin hating her skin tone. On seeing the suffering her sister was going through, Taylor Pollard, Kheris' older sister, decided to do something to brighten up her mood. She dolled up her little sister for a fashion show and posted the photos on twitter with the hashtag #FlexinInHerComplexion. What happened next was more than the two sisters expected. The pictures quickly went viral and received thousands of positive comments. That was the turning point and things started looking all the way up for Kheris.

She was even invited to perform alongside Beyonce in the Lemonade video shooting and Madonna is set to direct a biopic based on her life. Michaela's inspiration to become a ballerina was inspired by a magazine she found blowing in the wind. Its cover photo was a stunningly beautiful ballerina en pointe.
