She was Bullied Because of Her Birthmark But She Refused to Remove it. INSPIRING!





Whenever we struggle through life, comparing ourselves to other people and feeling less beautiful or important, these are the words to ponder on,

‘Uniqueness is a scientific fact of life. When God made you, He broke the mold. There never has been, and never will be, anybody exactly like you. ‘- Purpose Driven

We are created unique and beautiful, thus, we should be confident in our own skin. Living up to this is the Alberta, Canada based Cassandra Naud. The 22-year-old professional dancer was born with a large birthmark under her left eye. Bullied in her youth, she would fought back tears and felt ugly. She even struggled to get rid of it and beg for an operation.  This has changed though when she learned to appreciate her unique appearance and embraced it instead.

Naud was born with hypertrichosis, a rare condition which causes excessive hair growth in certain parts of the body.

Right after her birth, doctors suggested to her parents that her birthmark can be removed but it would leave her face scarred so they refused.

‘I’m so glad my parents chose to leave my birthmark as it’s part of who I am. Having a birthmark distinguishes me – and I don’t feel that it has ever held me back,’ she says.

She was told by one agent to ‘Photoshop her birthmark out of her head shots’ but she didn’t do it.

‘It makes me unique and memorable, which is especially important for the career I’ve chosen.’
