It doesn’t matter if you are a man or a woman, hair adds to a person’s beauty. Melanie hails from Connecticut and was born with Ectodermal dysplasia, a rare genetic deformity due to which she can’t grow any hair. The syndrome is also responsible for her deformed nose and nails. She is partially blind as well and obviously, was bullied mercilessly for a brief period of time she attended the school. After that, she was homeschooled and when the health insurance company finally canceled her claim, she decided that it’s time to accept the reality. She posed for some photos to be posted on a blog in order to spread awareness about her disease and to her surprise, received several modeling offers in the coming days. Now, she is a professional model and endorses many skin and facial care products. Talk about turning one’s weakness into a strength.
