Chantelle Brown-Young: Breaking the Mold on Beautiful

She is shattering today’s image of what beauty means and showing the world that it comes in all colors and in all different types of uniqueness

brownIf you don’t know who Chantelle Brown-Young is, the young model who is breaking the beauty mold in today’s fashion industry, it is time to get acquainted with her now.  Already booking high profile jobs, she was first introduced to the fashion world in Tyra Bank’s America’s Next Top Model competition. Not only is her unique beauty that makes her stand out but her character is really what makes you fall in love with her.

She was diagnosed with a skin condition called vitiligo at age 4. Vitiligo is a condition where your skin pigmentation loses its color in blotches. Throughout her childhood, she struggled with not only dealing with bullies who made fun of her skin condition but her own personal negative body image and low self-esteem. But today you would never know it. Today she emerges as a confident woman who embraces this condition and defines it as beautiful. She is shattering today’s image of what beauty means and showing the world that it comes in all colors and in all different types of uniqueness. This next IT girl is a great role model for other girls to come forward and turn something that they may have viewed as a flaw but now embrace the beauty for what it is.  Don’t try and fit the mold – it’s time to break it!
