In June 2014, Kayla Newman posted a Vine on her account as Peaches Monroee. In the six-second clip, seen above, she coined "eyebrows on fleek," a phrase which was embraced by popular culture while Newman remained unknown and uncompensated for her creation. On Sunday, Newman started a GoFundMe Page raising money to start a line of cosmetics and hair products.
On the fundraising page, Newman revealed that she is currently enrolled in college for nursing. "I want to start a cosmetic line and hair line; But I don't have any money to do so. Maybe this can help me with my wishes and dreams," she writes. "I also want to make sure [I'm] getting the recognition and money I deserve."
You can donate to Newman's fund here. If you're skeptical, as Emily V. Gordon reminded us on Twitter, "If the laughing chewie mom can get money, the eyebrows on fleek woman really should too." (Candace Payne a.k.a. Chewbacca Mom made nearly $500,000 in gifts and scholarships after a video of her wearing a mask of the Star Wars character went viral).
