Annelie, lives in Berlin, is a student in applied childhood studies and works in a daycare centre.

Annelie’s chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) suddenly appeared on Father’s Day 2 years ago. She has found the itching to be the worst as she finds it difficult to distract herself and stop herself scratching. At times this makes her skin raw and her condition worse and more obvious.

She used to hide her skin with various pieces of clothing but not anymore. With her youthful optimism, Annelie shows the world that there is no better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself.
