Dancer Cassandra Naud isn't interested in having 'the perfect look'.
malformalady:Professional dancer Cassandra Naud, 22, says she loves her unique appearance and even credits her birthmark for making her memorable in her industry. Hailing from Alberta, Canada, the dancer decided after speaking with a plastic surgeon long ago that the benefits do not outweigh the risks. Naud now embraces her birthmark which her parents decided not to have removed when she was a child, due to the level of scarring it might leave.Photo credit: Tio Von Hale/Hotspot Media
22-year-old professional dancer Cassandra Naud was born with a large birthmark under her left eye, and although she begged for an operation to remove it in her youth, she now refuses to get one – she even says that she appreciates her unique appearance and that it helps her stand out in her field.
This beautiful, strong woman, is 22-year-old professional dancer, Cassandra Naud. Born with a large hypertrichotic birthmark under her left eye, she has dealt with teasing, prejudice, and self-image issues. Her resolve? To keep it, be proud of it, and use it to stand out in her field (dancing). Love her!
