Nobody Else Looks Like Me

Written by Kirtus Kwincy
Posted on January 4, 2022

When vitiligo first started to impact my skin four years ago, I was 27 years old, and it came as quite a shock. I consider myself a strong person, but the impact that the depigmentation had on my skin happened quickly and changed my life. I’m grateful for the people I had around me who continued to stay positive when it was challenging for me to do so.

Fortunately, I am now able to see the positives that I couldn’t see as clearly in 2017. In this video, I share some of the things that have come out of my vitiligo journey that make me grateful, including the fact that nobody else looks like me.
