I am a young teenager who is always seeking more knowledge, and who happens to have been born with a Port Wine Stain on my right cheek. Already, I’ve learned so much about my Port Wine Stain and it’s effect on my world, especially in an environment full of teenagers and younger kids. Although I am still young and know I have much to learn, I hope to share my own experiences about growing up with a vascular birthmark with other kids and teenagers. I am proud of my Port Wine Stain. It has helped shape me into who I am today!
