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.
