Winnie Harlow is a world renowned model who has made it her mission to represent people with skin conditions in the media, and recently she became the first model with vitiligo to walk the runway at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. She suffers from Vitiligo, which is a skin disorder that causes pigment-free patches of skin to appear randomly on the body. It happens when the cells responsible for skin pigment, melanocytes, are destroyed. The cause of vitiligo is unknown, but some experts believe it might be an autoimmune disease—meaning the immune system attacks the body’s pigment-producing cells.

 

Living with a skin condition like vitiligo can be isolating, but throughout her career, Harlow has proved that it doesn’t have to hold you back from living life to the fullest neither from achieving your dreams, whatever they are.

 

Winnie Harlow is an inspirational figure to say the least and she has definitely stolen all of our hearts.
