The beginning of the new year brought something exciting for me. A journalist with Caters News Agency had contacted me asking if he could share my story. After drilling him with questions and determining that he was trustworthy and would portray my story properly, I granted him the opportunity to do just that. So, in January he released it in the United Kingdom and the US. It was immediately picked up by four publications in the UK: The Mirror, The Daily Mail, The Sun, and Metro. Then in the US, Allure shared it and so did Yahoo! My story also was in the Snapchat daily news headlines. It was shared by so many people and I’ve had others with ichthyosis from around the world contacting me thanking me for my inspirational story. Below are all the links to the stories.
