My Birthmark Made Me A Meme | BORN DIFFERENT

A woman, whose birthmark made her a viral meme, has used her online fame to help others with facial differences. Crystal Hodges, 26, from California, was born with a port wine stain birthmark on her left cheek, which induces extra blood flow to the face and affects the symmetry of her face and jaw structure. Up until 2014, Crystal was at peace with her birthmark until one day she came home from college to find that she had gone viral as a meme on Facebook. The meme - titled ‘One Like = Beautiful’ - subjected her to brutal cyberbullying and it reached over 30 million views. Although the experience affected her confidence, Crystal decided to use her new online fame to expand her motivational speaking career to help other people with facial differences.
