See why Winnie Harlow is well beyond her years and has chosen a life of joy.

Winnie Harlow is not your run-of-the-mill girl. At only 17, this young woman is well beyond her years, understanding the importance of embracing flaws and going against the grain. Many people will never achieve so much self-love in their entire lives, constantly hoping to change little things about themselves that are not even flaws, but Winnie has chosen a life of happiness by finding the good in her situation.

At age four, Winnie began to lose pigmentation in her skin. Not knowing what condition she had or why it was happening to her, Winnie’s childhood and school life was no walk in the park. From being called “cow” to “zebra,” Winnie experienced bullying for most of her life due to the appearance of her skin. The condition, called vitiligo, has given Winnie big patches of light pink skin all over. Amazingly, the patches on her face and arms have formed to be perfectly symmetrical, creating a striking, artistic look to Winnie’s appearance. As a result, Winnie has become a well known model, with her image appearing everywhere in major fashion campaigns.
