As a young girl, having the marks on her face made her feel like an outcast. She was constantly teased by her peers while in primary and secondary school.
“It really affected my self-esteem. It was really bad and made me decide not to further school and just learn a skill.”
The teasing took a new height when a classmate made the suggestion that she use sandpaper to get rid of the marks. Not realizing she was being bullied Adetutu actually attempted the suggestion.
Since that shoot, Adetutu OJ has landed many other modeling gigs as well. The thing that made her look go viral was her posting about her dream to one day model for Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty.
