AIMEE GRACE GODDEN
A while back Aimee (32) was so depressed about her condition she would cry herself to sleep at night. In February last year she was diagnosed with guttate psoriasis – a condition that causes red, scaly spots to form on the skin.
This type of psoriasis is more common among children and young adults.
For Aimee, her condition brought about severe self-consciousness, which caused her to hide her face from the world and to dread going out in public.
For her, taking part in the protest is a way of showing she has accepted everything about herself.
“I have psoriasis and I love my skin and my imperfections,” she says.
“I’m passionate about preventing bullying and I want people to stop targeting one another because of their differences.”
