This skin condition is rare with worldwide incidences averaging 1% with most people who're affected being diagnosed before the age of 40. Temilola Omobajesu, a model affected with vitiligo, states that the confidence within you is the key to overcome the 'stigma'.
"It took me some years to really accept Vitiligo. Vitiligo affected my modelling dreams and aspirations. Most Directors and Agents would tell me they couldn’t work with me. Some would even say it to my face that they need girls with beautiful skin not my patches." Temilola has started Viti-Dence Foundation, an NGO dedicated to the morale boosting of people with vitiligo and workshops on how to live with vitiligo with confidence, hence the name Viti-Dence (#vitiligo / #confidence.)
