Chubby Ify 'Egypt' Ufele who gets bullied a lot turned her nightmarish experience into something positive as she started a clothing line including for plus sizes and debuts her collection at the New York Fashion Week!
Ify 'Egypt' Ufele makes it to New York Fashion Week at just 10 years old after creating her own clothing line; 'ChubbiLine'.
The 5th grader who is chubby and gets bullied a lot for it turned her nightmarish experience into something positive as she started a clothing line including for plus sizes.
The 10 year old made a debut at the 2015 New York Week as a child designer dressing curvy models!
"I was bullied and they called me all kinds of names. One time I got stabbed by a pencil," the ten year old recalled about getting picked on.
Ify as she's fondly called sketches African-inspired designs for her 'ChubbiLine' brand herself and sews them with her grandma's sewing machine.
'I turned negative attention into positive attention,' she told the Today show. The 10 year old who started out making clothes for her dolls showed her debut collection at Fashion Week.
