Being noticed for our beauty can be a wonderful thing. Whether it’s receiving compliments for stunning blond hair or attracting blushes for a chiseled chin, acknowledgement from strangers regarding our radiance can often lift our spirits. But what about when those comments we receive are anything but pleasant? And worse still, what if we suspect that someone is making fun of our appearance? Ferrin Roy can certainly relate to that – not least because she bears a four-inch-wide birthmark.
Currently a resident of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Roy actually spent her childhood in the southern city of Rayne. And she now plies her trade as a counselor for those struggling with their mental health. But prior to that, the churchgoer learned to live with her distinctive feature as she grew up at home.
