My name is Natassia Cordrey. I have been blessed to have the skin condition vitiligo.
I am now 32 years old and I have had vitiligo since the age of 7. It was really hard to deal with as a young girl for as some of you may know this can be a cruel world. I can remember being called names such as cow, 101 Dalmatian, black n white, and Oreo. Oreo always stuck with me bc I’m a fanatic of cookies, that’s why the 1st of many CDV dolls name is Cookie. When I was about 10, I remember looking in the mirror after being teased and asking God, why me? It is then I heard a voice within say why not you? That’s where my life really began, I saw things so differently at that point, my self esteem was sky rocketing, I had a confidence no one could take away, having family who loves you just as you are plays a major role, my mom always told me God took his time making me, and for that I am forever grateful. I have been able to inspire many through my confidence, and there is no greater feeling.
