‘She had all this artwork up and it was all these beautiful African-American or African artists. She said, “Look at your skin colour, your skin colour looks like that”,’ she said.

As Kelly began to accept and love herself, she decided it was her responsibility to share her experiences to empower other young women.

‘I wasn’t just a face for myself, I was a face for other girls who looked like me and I don’t want them to see themselves and not see how incredible they are in their own skin,’ she offered.
