“I Started My Clothing Line After Being Bullied For My Dark Skin.”

A 10-year-old girl has taken her lemons and turned them into lemonade.

When Kheris Rogers was in elementary school, she was constantly bullied by white students for her darker skin. It had a negative impact on Kheris’ self-esteem and her mom decided to transfer her to a different school, according to BuzzFeed News, but the teasing still occurred. This time, it was other black students who were taunting her.

About Mastering You

"Mastering You" is about helping African American's to see their value in this world. I post only positive stories and information about what African American's have contributed to society in the past and currently. I don't post anything about Sports, Entertainment, Religion, or Politics. I also don't post anything that has a negative spin. While I am aware that there are negative things happening all over the world and that most people focus on the above four topics when it comes to African American's that is not my goal. If all you heard was negativity about any race that's all you will come to expect from them and everything else will be out of the norm. My goal is to show everyone that the negativity is often out of the norm, or at best they are equal to the positive. Just like every other race.
