Birthmark Awareness: working with ‘More Than A Face’

Forgive me – I don’t normally post on Mondays or start my posts in such an over excited way, but I have been really excited to share this with you all and the day has finally arrived!

About a month ago, I was interviewed by the brilliant charity More Than A Face about my birthmark. Past interviewees include people who have appeared on TV shows to talk about their physical differences, disability campaigners and body confidence advocates so I felt honoured to be asked to participate in an interview.

My birthmark has always been a part of who I am and is a part that until recently I have really struggled with. Whilst my relationship with it is still developing, participating in discussions about the effects of living with a birthmark, talking to others like myself and being part of a group of people who want to make sure things like facial disfigurements are met with acceptance has really helped me to accept and love who I am,

More Than A Face is a fantastic charity and does amazing work to ensure that people who might have something about their appearance that makes them ‘different’ like I do never feel alone, judged or like they are an outsider.
