A large part of what brought me to dermatology was my sister’s journey with her skin. At the age of eight, she was diagnosed with a skin condition called vitiligo, an autoimmune condition where the skin loses pigment in certain areas. She developed light patches on her skin including on her face, which can be devastating for anyone, but especially a Black girl. My parents were not really sure what to do at first, and for years, she wore makeup to cover up these areas as we tried to navigate treatment in the health care system. After a lot of searching, we eventually found a dermatologist that helped her, and I saw how impactful that was with not just her skin but her self-confidence and quality of life.
