FARMVILLE, Va. -

A high school junior is challenging Disney to do something she claims it has never done before -- create a plus-size princess.

Jewel Moore of Farmville created a Change.org petition, calling on Disney to "show support to a group of girls who are otherwise horrendously bullied."

Since Moore created the petition, more than 17,600 people have signed it. Moore is asking for 25,000 signatures.

"This move on Disney's part would have an amazing positive ripple effect in people all around the world," Moore wrote. "It would make young girls feel confident and worthy to see a strong character that looks like them."
