Cassandra Naud, 22, from Alberta Canada is not your average woman. Born with a huge brown birthmark on her right cheek, her parents were given the option of removing it when she was a child. Due to the fact that the surgery could have left her face heavily scarred, they decided against it.
She hasn’t always been so confident about her birthmark, especially in school where she was the victim of cruel taunts from bullies. Cassandra has since refused to have plastic surgery to remove her birthmark as she has chosen to embrace her individuality.
“My birthmark makes me unique and memorable […] It is who I am, and I honestly don’t feel it has ever held me back,” What do you guys think? Brave? If you would like to follow her on Instagram follow Cassandra here. Image Source: Screenshot/Instagram/2015
