ABOUT ME

BLOGGER.  PHILANTHROPIST.  ADVOCATE.

Hi, Everyone, my name is Rasheera and welcome to my site! 

I was born with 2 very rare syndromes; GoldenHar Syndrome and VATER Syndromes and over the course of my life I have had 103 surgeries… I know that’s a lot!   Growing up and having such a rare condition I didn’t see much of anyone who looked like me or who had gone through what I had gone through. And this was really tough because I constantly felt like I didn’t fit in.  I began to compare myself to others I saw in the magazines and TV because my beauty didn’t look like theirs. For a long time, I felt ashamed of my Difference. Matter of fact I hated being different, I just wanted to be normal.  And I did everything in my power to hide it.

Nevertheless, I came to a point in my life where I grew tired of hiding my difference. It was stopping me from living my life. Having low-self-esteem,  zero confidence and feeling alone and isolated didn’t feel like I was needed in this world. But I wanted to LIVE and I knew deep down that order for me to start enjoying my life I needed to find purpose in my Difference. Even though I didn’t have a face like everyone else there was something beautiful about me. I just needed to figure out a way to find it, and that is exactly what I did. I began to change the outlook that I had of myself no longer seeing myself as the girl with no ear or a crooked face but a girl with something unique.  Instead of dismissing my difference, I began to embrace it. I began to refer to myself as “A Beauty with a Twist” I came to the realization that although my face isn’t’ typical, it is beautiful and my Difference is worth sharing with the world. And I am here to let you know that your Difference is Beautiful too!

So now I’m an advocate I travel near and far speaking to patients and families letting them know that there is Beauty in their Difference in power in their voice!
