blogger, internet sensation and carol’s daughter model, nikia phoenix is the girl with freckles whose beauty makes you do a double take. her blog, model liberation, is a repository for style, good food, and nikia’s insights on life. i appreciated her recent post about feeling different and being bullied for being a black kid with freckles. it’s a reminder that even the most beautiful people must overcome struggles with their self-image.
