Teen Voted “Ugliest Girl In School” Reacted In The BEST Way

Like something out of a teen movie, students at Holy Trinity Regional High School in Torbay, Newfoundland, created a ranking of the 'ugliest girls' in the school. 

The whole school was involved when the poll was posted on Straw Poll, inviting everyone to vote online. 

This list included Lynelle Cantwell. 

However instead of taking the news that she'd been ranked fourth from the bottom to heart, Cantwell decided to use the opportunity to speak out about self-acceptance and self-love. 

Cantwell took to Facebook to give the bullies a message and her response has been shared almost 7,000 times already. 

Talking to BuzzFeed Canada, she said "I felt hurt, like really really hurt. Not gonna lie, it tore me apart a little bit". 

To the person that made the "ugliest girls in grade 12 at hth" ask.FM straw poll. I'm sorry that your life is so...

In the post, she included a list of all the beautiful parts of herself that the list-makers missed, point out things like "I'm funny, nice, kind, down to earth, not judgemental, accepting, helpful and I'm super easy to talk to. That's the same for every other girl on that list you all put down. Just because we don't look perfect on the outside does not mean we are ugly. If that's your idea of ugly then I feel sorry for you".
