  • Hello Gia, first let me state that your photo is beautiful.  My name is Lena.  I have initiated a campaign, "Redefining Beauty" since the definition for beauty is so narrow. I have a handbag line "INVINCIBLE" that will feature people like yourself who embody strength and courage while facing adversities. I would like for you to check out my two topics that start with "Redefining Beauty" on the forum.  After reading the write up, I really hope that you will be interested in joining the team.  This is not an attempt to exploit or garner sympathy or empathy, but to spread awareness, address bullying, educate and share wonderful stories in your own words.  Please let me know if you have any questions. 
    Thanks Lena

  • Hey Gia -- I sent you an add because I also work with children with autism. I'll be finishing up my Masters in Education soon (with a focus in ABA) and will then take the BCBA exam. Nice to see someone on here doing similar work! Hope all is well ...

  • Hi Gia, It's encouraging to know that vitiligo is starting to get noticed. I've had Vit for over 35 years and still have a hard time with my condition. It's made me shy and embarrassed when I'm out in the public, always covering up as much as possible. I have become dependent on makeup to cover my vitiligo on my face that I will never leave the house without it. Keep up the positive vibes and hopefully encourage more people with vitiligo to view life more positive.

    I'm also from Oakland Ca and like you have actually never come across people with vitiligo.

  • Thanks for the comment. :)
