Girl with rare skin condition on loving the skin you are in

Cheryl Shaw has spent most of her life hiding her body because it is covered in large patches of mole-like pigmentation.

The 33-year-old from Castle Bromwich, Solihull, has the rare skin condition, congenital melanocytes nevus.

At a young age she was called names such as "Dalmatian" and "spotty face".

But the mother-of-two has begun to embrace her situation to encourage people to love themselves unconditionally.

After setting up an Instagram account she has been scouted by a modelling agency which celebrates diversity.
