When Diandra Forrest was growing up, she was bullied and despised because of her skin condition. But her mum always told her that she was the most beautiful girl in the world. That gave her hope and later inspired her to join modeling.

However, her troubles did not end. The bulling and belittling continued even as she pursued her childhood dream of becoming a world class model.

“I had a modeling coach when I was about 15. But he was so mean. He told me I will never be a model because I was too odd,” Diandra, now a mother-of-one, told Refinery29.
