Winnie Harlow whose real name is Chantelle Brown-Young has vitiligo, a condition that she’s lived with from the age of four, she explains her condition in a short documentary…
“I got it when I was around three or four years old. When I got older, it got harder ’cause as kids get older, they get meaner. So I went through a lot of bullying with people calling me ‘zebra’ and ‘cow’ and stuff like that. So it was really hard for me growing up,” Winnie explained in Vitiligo: A Skin Condition Not a Life Changer, a short documentary.
A former America’s Next Top Model contestant, Winnie is featured in Diesel’s Spring/Summer 2015 Campaign.
