“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.
