Have you heard of Chantelle Brown-Young, but better known to her 300,000+ followers on Instagram as Winnie Harlow? Winnie is a 20 year old Canada born model who lives with vitiligo, the skin disease that turns your skin white, and causes the cells responsible for skin pigmentation to die. Winnie has a style that is all her own I think she is so dope. BuzzFeed.com calls her “Inspirational” She was diagnosed when she was just 4 years old and she was teased and bullied, her classmates callled her “zebra” and “cow”.

She decided to turn tragedy into triumph and move to California to pursue a career in fashion, she was also on America’s Next Top Model. She is now a model and she also writes.

I love her story and her drive because she proves that anything is possible. She recently posed for Dazed Magazine wearing Louis Vuitton and Prada, a model with vitiligo is unheard of in the fashion industry, and here she is living her dreams. She broke down doors and made her own way. Winnie is beautiful inside and out.
