But as she grows, she has come to appreciate the uniqueness of the marks on her. Below are her words.

“It’s the Tribal Marks for me!
Back in elementary school in Canada, I remember being made fun of about my tribal marks and being asked if I got scratched by lions in Africa . The teasing got so bad that I tried surgically to remove my tribal marks…..(Ouch ).

“I felt it made me so ugly and weird from everyone else around me because I didn’t understand why I had it in the first place! Now that I’m all grown and wise, I’ve come to realize how beautiful & unique it sure makes me look. True beauty does not come from physical attributes…true beauty comes from what is within.
Here’s to the tribal mark gang “
