My name is Brenna, and I am 22 years old. I have a Port Wine Stain that covers a large portion of the right side of my face. So far, I have had 10 laser treatments on my birthmark and only get them as needed. It took me a long time to accept myself and my birthmark but now, I am so confident and couldn’t imagine myself without it. Of course, not everything has been easy as a result, but that’s just pushed me to do and try harder. My birthmark does not define me, but it sure has helped me become who I am today!
