Beauty is within us, how many times have we heard it said: who is beautiful inside automatically becomes beautiful outside?
Pay attention to it, aren’t they what we consider defects that make us special, unique?
Improving ourselves every day, growing and accepting ourselves even imperfect, above all, because they are imperfect.
Chantelle Brown-Young, also known by the name Winnie Harlow, managed to fulfill her childhood dream by becoming a supermodel, fought over by the biggest fashion houses and protagonist of films and music videos such as that of Eminem or Beyoncé, but above all she is it resurrects to overcome the prejudice tied around those who are different.
At the age of four, she was diagnosed with vitiligo, a chronic condition characterized by depigmentation of portions of the skin. Because of this condition she was bullied and the verbal harassment suffered forced her to change schools several times, until she came to the idea of suicide.
But she did not give up, she understood her potential, her special, unique beauty, and became a symbol not only for others with the same problem but for every girl or boy, demonstrating that there is no “standard form” and that true beauty is our diversity. It inspired, for example, Mahogany Geter, a young woman suffering from a lymphatic problem that prevents her from the normal flow of blood to her leg. The weight of this condition, the bullying, the physical suffering, however, do not prevent her from believing in her dream of becoming a model, just like Whinnie, because today Mahogany also takes care of herself and believes in the potential of her beauty that goes beyond her shape and stereotype and turns, like a butterfly, into a message of positivity.
