What goes around, comes around. After being bullied for years at school due to severe acne on her face, a teenager named Cassandra Bankson is getting the last laugh — the model was recently booked to strut down the runway at New York Fashion Week.

According to the Daily Mail, Bankson, who first garnered a lot of attention last year after releasing a 10-minute YouTube video (see video below) about the way she uses makeup to hide her acne, is scheduled to walk the catwalk, wearing items from the U.S. label Boy Meets Girl's spring / summer collection. Cassandra told TODAY.com that she left school after being bullied and spent her time doing research to find out which makeup products worked best on her face. She was diagnosd with cystic acne at the age of 14, and her skin condition is 70 percent improved since she first started creating her YouTube tutorials.


This all comes after Bankson's video, which has gotten close to 40 million hits, got the attention of national modeling agencies. Since then, she has been modeling for brands such as Bebe and Range Rover.
