Meet Our June 2020 Member Spotlight: Emmanuel
Emmanuel was first diagnosed with vitiligo in 5th grade when he started noticing halos around his moles. He remembers when people started staring at him and how difficult it was overcome. Another obstacle he faced was learning how to properly take care of his skin, especially because he is often outside and enjoys participating in outdoor activities at scouts. Having the support of his family and being able to talk about vitiligo has made coping easier. Emmanuel just recently graduated in 7th grade and he says he is living his best life! Something he wishes more people knew about vitiligo is that it is not a contagious condition. It is something that he has no control over, but at the end of the day, he is still the same amazing person! Thank you, Emmanuel, for allowing us to share your story!
