Campaign: To reduce stigma surrounding Vitiligo

I started to develop vitiligo when I was 10.

 

It’s where the skin cells attack themselves and stop producing melanin and pigmentation, so the skin turns white.

 

When it started spreading I got really depressed and anxious about how other people like my friends and family would feel about me.

 

There’s a lot of ignorance about vitiligo and with Fixers I’m hoping to educate people and reduce the stigma attached to it.
