hi there!

I am 22 yrs old with hemangioma on my right cheek. Like you, I am also a teacher.. but i teach the lower grades.. they are more frank than most adults. Eventhough i put on concealer, as the day goes by, the mark become more obvious. My students never made fun of it.. instead they ask questions.. and i am more than happy to explain to them.. and i believe as a teacher we can do alot to the future generation.. in term of character building.. and what a better way to teach abt self-confidence and beauty in the eye of the beholder other than by being a role model... but i have a confession.. sometime i made use of my mark as a way to get them to listen to me.. and it usually work! hahaha
