“I was called an alien”: a 22-year-old girl hated herself all her life

22-year-old Olivia Hotsshilt was born with a rare facial disease. Doctors diagnosed her – genetic dysplasia of the skeleton. Parts of the skull are fused ahead of time, so she does not have a nose, and her eyes are far apart. At the age of 5, the girl first realized that she was not like everyone else. The peers began to mock at her, and she stopped looking at herself in the mirror. The girl remembers that she did not understand how she differs from other children until she started going to children garden.
