Kheris was having a difficult time at school and was repeatedly bullied for her complexion and her weight.
"A couple of girls at school would tease her about being skinny and about her skin tone, but it’s weird because it came from people who are bBlack as well," Kheris' sister told Buzzfeed.
When Kheris read the many compliments she received from strangers, her attitude about herself began to shift.
"She was obsessed with the comments. So many people's comments gave her a positive outlook on her skin. It gave her reassurance," Taylor told Buzzfeed.
"I was overwhelmed," Kheris said. "There were so many comments that they loved my skin and my hair."
