Rae’s success has led to online trolling and she revealed the advice her friend Kourtney Kardashian gave her.

Rae, who features on the cover of Glamour UK’s February digital issue, told the magazine: “It’s really inspiring to see people that are so happy in their lives and are so put together after everything they’ve been through.

“That’s why I look up to Kourtney a lot and her entire family – throughout everything you can lean back on your family and friends to really have that emotional and mental support. It really pulls you through at the end.

“Something that she told me was, ‘Make sure you’re always enjoying what you’re doing because this is the life you’re living. Make sure it’s something that you’re proud of and you’re continuing to do the things you love.’”

Rae, a dancer originally from Lafayette, Louisiana, said she has “dealt a lot with online hate and social media drama”.

She added: “When I look at negative comments I can’t let it get to me that much and I think, ‘That doesn’t define me, and they don’t really truly know me in my heart.’

“There’s going to be people that don’t like you and that want to tear you down, but you have to love yourself for who you are.”
