Cassandra Naud is a 22-year-old professional dancer living in Alberta, Canada. Cassandra was born with a large birthmark covered in hair (hypertrichotic) under her left eye. When still a child, Cassandra wanted badly to remove it since she felt embarrassed in front of other people but her parents decided to not do it since they were afraid to result a serious scar on her face. She was bullied all the time, but she took her courage and embrace her appearance rather than hiding it.
Cassandra is indeed a very special person that we don’t get often to meet people like her, and not because of her large birthmark on her cheek.
Rather than hiding what it makes her different about herself, she is now embracing it.
She even refused when many people suggested to remove it
“My birthmark is a huge part of me. It makes me unique and memorable, which is especially important for the career I’ve chosen”
Her special mark didn’t stop her to find her soulmate !
‘As my birthmark sunk through several layers of skin, plastic surgery was the only option for removal. Doctors gave my parents a choice, warning them there could be scarring or I could be left with a lazy eye,’ she says
‘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 is amazing! don’t you agree?
