Sharing the peak of my distressful and stigmatised days with Vitiligo!!!

I remember a fateful day I walked into a Business Centre @ Ilupeju to photocopy my CV and seated there was one overzealous man whom after staring at me for a while walked up to me rubbing my face and asking with very annoying laugh, what is this little girl? I was so surprised, embarrassed, insulted and amazed that I asked him, do you have to touch me to ask that.

The first encounter with Vitiligo

You never really know what is going to happen in your life, Everything can be going along just fine and then out of nowhere everything changes in an instant. Sometimes, when we are faced with adversity, we discover a side of us that we may not have been aware of.
