My Story by Eva Mackenzie
I am happy with my birthmarks because I am myself. It is hard to get confident when something new is happening because you can get a bit shy!
If your friends or strangers ask why you have birthmarks just say “Because I was born like that!” If you don’t say that they will keep on asking you.
When I was six, I was asked to a friend’s swimming party. I didn’t want to go because I was shy but Mummy and I talked. She came with me into the water. Nobody noticed anything and I was glad I went! I felt great.
Yesterday, Dad took me to The Lord Mayor’s Day. I went on the bouncy castle and my birthmark showed a little. I looked at Dad and I felt okay.
