My Birthmark Is Beautiful | SHAKE MY BEAUTY

SUBSCRIBE to Barcroft TV: http://bit.ly/Oc61Hj

A YOUNG WOMAN born with a port wine stain covering her whole face started a body positivity campaign to challenge the beauty standards in society. Tessa Schiethart, 25, from Amsterdam, The Netherlands, was born with the Sturge-Weber Syndrome that resulted in a port-wine stain on her face and increased pressure in the eye. Despite her condition, Tessa refuses to cover her birthmark with make-up and embraces her differences. Tessa’s goal is to spread awareness of visible difference by sharing her own story of living with a facial birthmark. Her campaign ‘To Face The World’ is aimed at promoting a difference in society and organisations, to inspire others to be themselves, and to change our societal view on diversity.
