Dr. Linda Rozell-Shannon, PhD President and Founder

Rafaela Khairunisa, Singapore

I am Rafaela, 36 years old, and was born with port wine stain. I’ve never been treated before because, and I am proud of my birthmark. Even though I was bullied as a child, I never had low self-esteem. I have a wonderful family which always support me. Now I am yoga instructor and they call me “the beautifully marked yoga instructor”. I am here to provide support and awareness to others who have the same beautiful mark, especially in Singapore and southeast Asia. Thank you VBF, I’m proud be a Global Ambassador!
