This App Made One College Student a Local Celebrity Overnight

File this one away as your feel-good story of the week. Out of nowhere, a new app called Yeti Campus Stories is spreading like wildfire on college campuses across the country this semester. Basically, Yeti creates a Snapchat-like story on each campus, but unlike Snapchat, students decide what makes it on their school’s Yeti feed. Since it’s completely controlled by students, the content is a little more PG-13 than Snapchat stories. Something recently happened on the Mississippi State University Yeti feed that, luckily, had a very happy ending!

This student from Mississippi State University, “Braces Girl,” began uploading these selfies. Totally normal--totally something we have all done.

You might be able to guess what happened next. As is often the case with social media, a few cowards with nothing better to do took to the app, bashing Braces Girl:

Then something amazing happened. Instead of backing down, she became more active than ever on Yeti, radiating positivity and inspiring others to feel good. Not sure we would have been brave enough to do this, but kudos to our fellow collegiette!

And the rest of the Mississippi State Yeti community rallied behind her, proving our generation isn’t completely heartless:

Braces Girl: 1; Bullies: 0

The love for Braces Girl didn’t stop there though. Almost overnight, she became a local celebrity on campus. Students began posting on Yeti with selfies with her--pretty awesome to become famous on campus just by being yourself!

YOU GO, BRACES GIRL!
