(AURN) -- First she was bullied and now she's has a blossoming model career.
19-year-old Khoudia Diop says she was bullied throughout her childhood for her dark complexion. The Senegalese model says, “They nicknamed me Darky, Daughter of the Night or Mother of the Stars.”
Diop began modeling at the age of 17. She's now based in Paris and has about 235,000 followers on Instagram, where she posts her pictures and inspirational quotes. She hopes that she can inspire other dark-skinned girls to love themselves.

In and interview with Daily Mail, Diop says,
“I was teased a lot growing up, because of my skin tone. “And now even online sometimes, people will make comments.
Growing up, I faced it by confronting the bullies. As I grew, I learned to love myself more every day, and not pay attention to the negative people.”
