Kyemah McEntyre & The Prom Dress That Challenged The Status Quo

Kyemah McEntyre , decided to do something different and challenge the status quo with her prom dress. I will let her tell it in her own words from her Instagram page. 

“I‘m Kyemah McEntyre, 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,”

"This is for always being labeled as, 'ugly' or 'angry.' Thank God, stereotypes are just opinions."

"I believe that in order for society to gain a wider horizon, we have to be willing to acknowledge other people from differences, beliefs, morals, and values. I would like to take this moment to say that you have to understand who you are because if you leave that space open, you leave your identity in the hands of society. Don't let anyone define you. Beautiful things happen when you take pride in yourself."

Enough said.
