Kheris Rogers known as KerisPoppin was only 10 years old when she became the CEO of Felixin in My Complexion. It all started when the California girl was taunted by other children and scrutinized by teachers, but it didn’t break her, it made her stronger. So much stronger she became the influence worn by celebrities such as Lupita Nyongo and Drake.
Kherispoppin aka Kheris talks about how her teacher gave her a black crayon to color in a photo that was supposed to be her.
One day her sister posted a video of her singing and dancing with classmates, but the caption told a story of a beautiful girl that was being teased by classmates and teachers. Well, that video went viral.
By the next day Kheris Rogers had over a million people telling her how beautiful she was. That video catapulted into modeling deals. But also, a popular clothing line that inspired other girls like her to be comfortable in their complexion.
KherisPoppin has continued flexin.
