17-Year-Old Bullied For Her Thick Eyebrows Lands Massive Modeling Jobs

Natalia Castellar was mocked as a youngster by other children for her thick, dark eyebrows, but now the 17-year-old has shut down her haters after landing a modeling job.

“When I was younger they were all anyone would point out. I was bullied terribly because of how thick and long they were, so I wanted to shave them down,” Natalia said. However, she managed to turn a blind eye to all the hate and her new attitude gained an impressive following on social media, which earned Castellar a contract with NEXT Models, which is listed as one of the top modeling agencies in the world.

“When I was younger [my eyebrows] were all anyone would point out,” says 17-year-old Natalia

“I was bullied terribly because of how thick and long they were”

Natalia even wanted to shave her eyebrows

“Now I don’t care if they stay trendy or not, I love my eyebrows”

Her confident new attitude got Natalia a contract with NEXT Models

And she already posed for NARS and Mansur Gavriel

“They’re my trademark, and I wish I would have embraced them sooner”

Natalia is very excited about her upcoming career

“I can’t wait to travel and work. I’m the type of person that’s content when they’re constantly doing something”

“A lot of trolls [still] leave nasty comments about my eyebrows, but I don’t give in and respond, because that’s what they want”
