Hi my name’s Jed, I’m from Australia, I have a birthmark on my right side of my face which runs up through to the top of my head and i had it well, since i was born! I had lazsor treatment to reduce the brightness off my birthmark since birth untill i was about 7-8 yrs then i learn that it would never “go away” i simply embrace it and live with it, you get some stares some comments to, ive learnt just to ignore it over the years. I’m now 17yrs old and i am currently finishing school and aspire to become a fisheries officer in the future. I want to spread my thoughts and story of my birthmark and hopefully become an ambassador for you guys! Would be so awesome to have a community like this to be apart of. So glad there is something like this out there love your work guys!
