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 makeup 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.
