Egypt Ufele

At 11 years old Egypt (Ify) Ufele, fashion designer and child prodigy changed the game when she overcame Bullying through creativity, intelligence and grace at the age of 10. Challenged by chronic illness that required steroids to save her life, Ify was Bullied for being chubby. While a lesser person would have caved, she used personality and imagination to design a line of clothing for kids who looked like her. She also established a non-profit called Bully Chasers. Ify is on a mission to send a life-line to other kids drowning in a sea of Bullies. Painful memories make her stand tall as she helps others to look and feel like a runway model. Her gentle demeanor belies her firm resolve as she crushes the fashion world with iconic fashion and sassy looks for children, plus-size women, men and boys.
