Ify Ufele became the first child designer to dress plus-size models at New York Fashion Week.

“My mission is to empower girls and boys to build their confidence for themselves,” Ufele told Mashable. “I am … making clothing for all sizes and talking to kids around my age and telling them my bullying experience and telling them how I overcame it.”
