If we learned anything from middle school, it's that kids can really suck sometimes. When Khoudia Diop was growing up, peers called her "Darky, Daughter of the Night" to make fun of her skin color. Now the 19-year-old is a top model with a cool 240,000 Instagram followers and a message for anyone who's been bullied for the way they look: "If you’re lucky enough to be different, don’t ever change.” Amen to that!

Check out her stunning photos and go ahead and follow Diop. She'll add a dose of self-love to your Instagram feed.
