After being called every name in the book, it appears as if the tide has changed for the fashionable fifth-grader

“People applaud me and tell me I’m good at fashion,” Ify said.Ify’s line is titled “Chubiline,” which she describes as bringing “Africa to America one design at a time.”“I turned negative attention into positive attention,” Ify said.And she did all of this at just 10 years old.
