When working on a photo shoot, I am always treated as a professional model. My peers are fascinated by my spots. I often here from them how beautiful my spots are. I love the work that I do, and feel my photography captures my beauty. Through my work, others are able to appreciate my artistry. This makes me stronger as a person. I made a talk show to discuss vitiligo and often get recognized on the street from the work that I did on that show. People always tell me how much they appreciate the work I did with vitiligo and through this awareness, inturn, I helped them feel more comfortable in their own skin.
