Sonny Turner is making up for her high school years in the best possible way.
The up-and-coming model is now the face of Evans, a popular plus-size clothing brand in the United Kingdom. Her photo is featured on billboards across the store. What would be anÂ exciting day for anyone has extra resonance for Turner, who used the opportunity toÂ send a message to the people who bullied her in high school.
â€œTO EVERYONE IN SCHOOL WHO SAID I WASNT S*** AND LABELLED ME WEIRD AND â€˜DIFFERENTâ€™ THIS ONES FOR U,â€ she tweeted alongside her photos of the gorgeous campaign. Thatâ€™s one bold way to announce a campaign. The photos and their revenge-spirational message have already gotten more than 145,000 likes, with plenty of comments cheering Turner on.
