A woman who used to be bullied for her looks as a child has revealed how she got her sweet revenge on her bullies by becoming a model.
April Opal is an established 19-year-old model who rakes in up to $35,000 a month by doing what she never imagined she could do – selling her pictures for money.
As the young lady admitted, she was often “beaten with the ugly stick” and tormented by her classmates for being the “strange looking child” who wore big eyeglasses and looked like a nerd.
It seems, however, that April has had the last laugh and that all the things that were said to her in the past only made her stronger.
Now, the model proudly shares her photos online while never shying away from taking a swipe at people who mocked her and at those who continue to do so despite her success.
“I don’t think I’m ever going to get used to the fact that I’m paid for how I look because I was a genuinely ugly kid. I got relentlessly bullied for being an ugly kid,” April says.
“I was a genuinely strange child and as I got older it never really got better… I was overweight and I didn’t do my makeup and all of that s***.”
She added: “So yeah, it is actually kind of strange, it is like I am constantly waiting for everybody else to be like actually ‘we are joking, we don’t like how you look and really we think you are still that weird that kid.’”
