Bullied Teen Designs Prom Dress and Wins Prom Queen Title

A high school student just designed the most beautiful, original prom dress we've ever seen, and she has an awesome story to go with it.

Kyemah McEntyre, 18, is a high school senior who was bullied. She designed her own prom dress to fight back against bullies.

She says was inspired by her African heritage. After sketching out the design, a local seamstress made her design a reality. McEntyre explained her dress' story on Twitter and Instagram:

"I am 18 years old and I am undoubtedly of African descent. As an artist I have a completely different point of view compared to most individuals. I am extremely analytical and observant," McEntyre writes. "This is for always being labeled as, 'ugly' or 'angry.' Thank God, stereotypes are just opinions."

Kyemah McEntyre was chosen as prom queen.

McEntyre will be attending the Parsons School of Design in the fall.

What do you think of her prom dress? We know we're excited to see some more gorgeous creations from the talented designer.
