America's Next Top Model Cycle 15 winner Ann Ward has a message for girls who are being bullied like she has in the past.
The 19 year old tells People magazine:
"I would tell all the young girls that are being bullied not to pay attention to the bullies, because they're just doing it because they're insecure about themselves. It's not really something to worry about because we're all different in different ways. I was super, super tall and it was something that made me unique and it got me further into the competition, so just be proud of how you're unique."
Well said, Ann!
We think she's going to be a great inspiration for young girls.

If you didn't see Wednesday night's America's Next Top Model finale stop reading now!
On last night's finale, Ann Ward and Chelsey Hersley were the last two girls in the running to become America's Next Top Model.
And just like last season the underdog won!!!
From the very beginning Ann was controversial because of her unbelievably small waist. But if you watched any of this season's episodes you couldn't help but like the quiet and awkward girl from Texas.
So how did Chelsey react?
See for yourself in the clip (above!)
P.S. We can't wait to see Ann in Vogue Italia!!!
