She Photographed Herself Every Day for 6.5 Years to Prove 'People Are More Than Their Conditions'


Rebecca Brown understands that beauty isn’t just physical — she spent the last six-and-a-half years learning this.

Brown has trichotillomania, a disorder that causes people to compulsively pull out their hair. So, from age 14 to 21, she took a photo of herself every day to show her physical transformation. In some pictures, Brown has a full head of hair. In others, she has bald patches. But every day, she’s beautiful.

“Beauty is more than what we see with the eyes. People are more than their conditions,” Brown writes on YouTube. “I am more than my hair and skin.”
