“Life is full of labels. This is my label. I’m a giraffe and I have accepted it. I have found a way to love myself with all my dots + spots, even though it has taken me years. It’s been 12 years since I got my first spot on my skin. I have grown so much as a person and my vitiligo has also grown along with me.”
Erika Page is a writer and blogger with universal vitiligo. Her first spots appeared on her spine when she was seven years old and today vitiligo covers her entire body. Based just south of Washington, D.C., Erika founded Living Dappled to create a community of inspiration and hope for girls and women living with vitiligo.
