She Was Born With Birthmarks That Covered Her Entire Body – But Wait Until You See Her Now!
For Ciera Swaringen, her childhood was not the “typical” childhood that a little girl would want. Instead, she was taunted by bullies her entire life.
Ciera was born with Giant Congenital Melanocytic Nevus – a rare skin affliction that has left her body covered in hundreds of oversized moles and birthmarks.
She recently spoke to the Daily Mail and said, “One day I remember being on the school bus and hearing a young boy laugh at me and call me a spotty dog. That really knocked my confidence. I was only young and it made me feel different to the other kids, like something was wrong with me.”
But Ciera pushed on. She has remained positive and confident even through all the horrible remarks. She credits this to her supportive parents who once told her that her birthmarks were really “Angel kisses.”
Removing the birthmarks was never an option, as doctors said she had too many, and she would just get more as she grew older. Now, as a young woman, she has embraced the beautiful marks that make her unique. She told the Daily Mail, “Everyone is born to look different, and we should all feel beautiful in our own skin.”
She continues to spread a positive message saying, “I’m so proud to be different and, at the end of the day, we all have something about us that’s unusual, whether it’s on the inside or the outside.”
