Vitiligo Awareness Spotlight

June 2021


Madison Martins

My name is Madison Martins, and you are about to embark on a quick part of my life story. Let's go back to my freshman year of high school, for an update I'm now a sophomore at Florida Southern College, as a freshman I got “diagnosed” with a disease called Vitiligo. Hearing the words diagnosed with something was completely life changing. At first it was in the most negative way possible, then I realized that it's part of me and forever will be. This mindset did not change overnight, and believe me it still gets hard here and there. Vitiligo is now a huge part of me, I used it in the most extraordinary way I can. Many people give looks of curiosity, looks of pain, or so many others. Yes, these looks might seem very hurtful, but they no longer are! I learned how to embrace that I'm different and will be for the rest of my life. I try to teach people no matter what you look like you are loved and amazing. Believe it or not, people who may look “normal” still go through rough days, so Vitiligo has taught me that I may be different, but so is everyone in their unique way.
