Alami goes to Summit High School in California and said she just did it because she thought it was funny. That was before it spread all over Twitter and Tumblr.
Alami told BuzzFeed that the reactions have been great. A lot of people have told her they love her self confidence.
“I’m getting a lot of ‘slay’ and ‘G.O.A.T’ comments [ed.: ‘Greatest Of All Time’],” she said. “There are a very small handful of people saying I’m putting girls down but I’m really not.”
She said her new notoriety has brought out some racist trolls, too. But for the most part it’s mainly fans and jealous classmates.
