The Love Yourself Project looks to build awareness and show a fun side of vitiligo. When approached with the opportunity to participate, I didn’t hesitate.
My name is Rene. I was 15 when I noticed my first patch of vitiligo. I am a scientist, a Christian, and a woman of color. Life has taught me that the right medicine can make a world of difference; however, medication alone can’t solve everything.
My vitiligo journey propelled me to pursue wholeness beyond the physical, and into emotional and spiritual wellbeing. My beauty is not a blemish. And whenever I have an opportunity, I try to inspire others to see skin deeper and embrace uniqueness in the people and world all around us.
