My Vitiligo is Disappearing – But I Don’t Want It To | BORN DIFFERENT


when it comes to Instagram comments I do get good ones and I do you get a bad ones yeah you literally look like artwork or or colors your private part [Music] people ask all sorts of questions I’m like is it a bird is it a birthmark is it what happened simply is it skin cancer some people just want to know some people just literally just curious it’s not out of like say being rude I just know that it’s a different color on my skin it’s not contagious you won’t catch any illness from it it doesn’t affect your health 23 year old Bashir was born with a condition called vitiligo which causes the skin to lose pigment and color on my skin myself as you can see it’s affected me down the middle and in my hair as well I cannot fetch ya know some people don’t know they kind of fetch your hair but you can there were treatments that they gave me for vitiligo cuz I did go to dermatologists for a long time one guy was literally okay well because it’s quite extensive why don’t you go white I need like what the hell my are you serious try and tell me to change race they’re literally trying something to change my identity and that’s dead so I’d rather if anything represent both races as there is no known cure for vitiligo looking different is all Bashar has ever known but over the years he’s noticed a change in his skin so I was born with it’s like oh well I’d say 80% of my body button now and my skin pigments over the years just come back to life so it’s actually I don’t know 50% now or 40% even I’m happy that basically is doing the work that is supposed to do biologically but at the same time I’m happy that electron I’m leaving that special no more yeah it’s a bit of a mad thing I’m not gonna lie to you this is when I was like I don’t even know nursery and you can see how wide it is there in it like you can see my vitiligo literally it touches from eyebrows so I brought the big it still does but like as you I don’t know if you can zoom in but like you can see yeah like the bridge almost as to like wait it’s filled up over the years I feel two ways about it I feel um I feel happy I feel happy that I’m I see I don’t I don’t know I feel unhappy this is another picture these words kindly get to me my mum she used to like go to doctors it needs to give like a make up food I caught my majority of these look makeup makeup hmm makeup makeup I don’t know it was for my sake oh it was for her sake but like she just did it anyway just to cover up just to make I don’t know the staring less to fit in to the crowd I guess I don’t know less pressure on me and her maybe you never know how it isn’t it so like yeah like I did wear a lot makeup Here I am chillin look swag from early here brown face makeup for my young age I didn’t want to cover up my skin but I also did feel uncomfortable about I say the way people would look at me and stuff like that I was Billy for a bit people would call me and I say a cow or zebra it did have an impact on me all that well the name-calling because it would affect anybody’s confidence just as bullying does when I got older they were affected me and my loads of different ways getting girlfriends socialising talking opening up just doing the new activities that required me to show my skin lights trimming etc ads Bashar got older he started to think differently about his appearance but you have to be yourself you have to love yourself in that way people just love you when you don’t love yourself harder how do you expect other people to love you if I was to continue with that you like oh I hate the fact that I’m alive I hate the fact that I’m short I hate the fact that I’ve got to kind of skin and all of this all of this all of this whatever that excuse me it’d be like I fell to carry on like that I would not be as happy as I am a big turning point came when Bashir took his look onto social media instead of shying away from people he became proud for his unique look and now enjoys showing off and celebrating his skin vitiligo is improve my life in a madly I do think I’m both an artist and a piece of art a lot of people see my work and recognize it and now they’re just like alright cool social media has certainly helped me love myself because you upload a picture on Instagram and then like you leave it alone and then like two hours later you come back to like 30 comments and 50 likes you just like all this love of this one for that’s encouraging me to do more and more artwork or more of this or more like this or it’s made me feel better as a person so maybe I can actually talk to this girl because do you know I mean like whatever works but yeah it definitely works obviously when I was younger I did wish that it would fade away and I don’t mean going I mean yeah but as I get older I literally appreciate every individual thing I’m not even just about myself about every other person as well everyone that decides to showcase their uniqueness I would say what Bechet looked at once has a disadvantage in his life is gonna end up being his biggest tool my final conclusion about is that I wish that it just literally stays the way it is I even notice these spots coming back here here here here here not bad now a feeling in 10 years you’ll see a different pattern I hope hopefully is just as nice as this one you you
