A 10-year-old fashion prodigy is standing against bullies from her school by debuting her size-inclusive clothing label at New York Fashion Week.
Egypt Ufele, who goes by “Ify,” started designing clothes to cope with bullies who taunted her about her weight at her school in the Queens borough of New York.
“I was bullied, and they called me all kinds of names. One time I got stabbed with a pencil,” Ufele told NBC’s “Today.”
At first, Ify just made outfits for her dolls. Then she started cranking out women’s and girls’ clothing for all shapes and sizes with her grandmother’s sewing machine.
