My name is V and I am from Georgia:
I have vitiligo and recently attended the World Vitiligo Conference. The experience was extremely enlightening and it has inspired me to help the vitiligo community out in any way I can. As such, I was wondering what opportunities I could take to help out the community and how I could start my involvement? This can range from reading vitiligo awareness books at local schools to speaking on the podcast. Thank you!

My name is Millicent - PPT Lead Advisor:
The conference was very education and insightful. It was good to see old friends and meet new one. The motivational speaker gave good advice and guidance about self-love and being who you are. Also, the women session was emotional in a good way. The advice, tears and struggles we still go through spoken about. I love the vendors, but wish there were some selling jewelry and/or clothing that had nothing to do with Vitiligo. Thanks!
