18-year-old Kyemah McEntyre designed a prom dress is anything but typical. The New Jersey resident, inspired by her African heritage, had a local seamstress from Markell’s Closet hand-sew the dress from McEntyre’s sketch. She explained the motivation behind her dress on Instagram and Twitter:

“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.”

McEntyre was chosen to be prom queen, and this fall she will be attending the Parsons School of Design.

Kyemah McEntyre was bullied in high-school. So she decided to do something different for Prom. McEntyre designed a dress inspired by her African heritage. “This is for always being labeled as, “ugly” or “angry”. Thank God, stereotypes are just opinions” she wrote on Twitter. McEntyre was chosen Prom Queen.

“As an artist I have a completely different point of view compared to most individuals”. “The most creative people are the ones who step out of their comfort zone and take advantage of the world around them”. “Don’t let anyone define you. Beautiful things happen when you take pride in yourself”.
