She may have been teased when whe was a child, but now, she has the last laugh.

19-year-old Khoudia Diop is from Senegal and she says her dark skin tone inspired a lot of unwelcome comments, like "Midnight" and "The Blackest Girl".

She tried standing up to her bullies, but eventually learned to block them out and just live her life as best she could. Learning to love the skin that she is in.

Now she's living a great life as a fashion model in Paris. She was chosen to be part of a new campaign by TheColoredGirl dot com called Rebirth, which is meant to inspire and empower black women.

As far as nick names go, she prefers one that refers to the pigment that gives her skin a dark color, "Melaniin Goddess".

She may still get some negative comments online, but she embraces her uniqueness and says to others "If you are lucky enough to be different, don't ever change!".
