This Model Refused To Remove Her Birthmark And We Are Proud Of Her

She stands as an inspiration for everyone who is embarrassed with their birthmark.
Mariana Mendes from  Brazil was born with a large birthmark on her face. She was told from an early age that her large facial birthmark was 'ugly' and 'strange.' But the girl believes that the birthmark makes her unique. "I feel more beautiful and totally different from other people because I have a nevus. I have been told by a few people that it’s 'ugly' or 'strange', but it doesn’t bother me that’s just their opinion and I think it’s beautiful." Mariana said.
Mariana's mother was worried that her daughter will be bullied so she had laser surgery on her birthmark. She received lightening sessions to make her birthmark less visible. But Mariana is happy that she stopped. "When I was a child, for fear of me being bullied, my mother took me to the doctor for laser treatment to clear the nevus. As I only had a few sessions the results were very little and almost unnoticeable. I’m glad I stopped because more sessions the more reduced it would have become," she said.
