What Makes You Different?

Loving My Scars

My name is Kimberly and I have a condition called hydrocephalus.  It means I have extra fluid in my brain and for many people with this condition they need surgery.  I had four brain surgeries before my 8th birthday but have not needed anymore since then. 😊  As much as I was thankful for my health, growing up I hated when people saw my scars or looked at me funny.  It made me super self-conscious and I endured many nights in tears because of it.  As I got older I realized it’s okay to be different and I use it as an opportunity to help young kids feel good about their hang-ups.  I just started a page on Instagram called “What Makes You Different?” for people to show off their differences.  It’s a page to embrace whatever conditions, scars, or disabilities we might have.  It’s a page to bring joy to people who think no one else understands them.  The goal is to create confidence for anyone who feels uncomfortable in their skin so they can show off what makes them different.  I want to thank yoocan for starting this page and encouraging so many people out there.  I would love to support everyone on their journey to positively change the world 😊
