‘Flexin My Complexion’ Founder Kheris Rogers Stars In Nike Ad

By Posted on 0 1 m read

Kheris Rogers made internet waves when her older sister revealed that she was bullied for her darker complexion by other children at school.  At 11 years old, Rogers made the choice to embrace her beauty and not succumb to the teasing and taunting. Rogers created her own fashion line, showed at New York Fashion Week and began flexing her complexion, inspiring many of all ages across the country.

Today, Kheris Rogers remains diligent to her mission of promoting self-love, and anti-bullying.  Rogers kicked 2018 off by sharing her first Nike ad.

“Let’s all make 2018 the year of ‘doing.’ In less than a year, I went from feeling bad about myself because I was being bullied for how I looked to loving myself completely and following my dreams. I encourage you all to ‘do’ what makes you happy and believe in yourself that you can make your dream a reality!” writes Kheris Rogers in her Instagram caption.

While this is the first Nike ad Rogers appears in, it is sure to not be the last. The young queen has a promising future in fashion, business and continues to leave an essence of black girl magic wherever she goes.
