Esta chica dejó de ser bulleada por su apariencia y se convirtió en modelo

La joven de 26 años padece displasia, que consiste en que gran parte de su piel tiene malformaciones, lo que causa que sus genes muten.

La belleza no siempre viene en las mismas presentaciones, y en el mundo hay todo tipo de manifestaciones que pueden ser opuestas a las que los medios establecen, justo como Ilka Bruehl, una chica que pasó de ser víctima de las burlas a ser de la primera modelo con displasia.

I think EVERYBODY is beautiful in her or his own way. Never mind if you are a classic beauty, tall, small, stout, thin, black, white,… Except mean people, but that's another story. I read many mean comments in the last days about people like me. Don't worry they don't hurt me , I swear. But I know that other persons, who can't only laugh about such nonsense get them too. And that's the point where I get really really angry. So I will never stop to remind the world that EVERYONE is beautiful! Therefore I decided to show a baby photo of me. Because you see my "defect" there better. Furthermore I get many direct messages with the question why I look like I do. At first I hesitated to show this because some of you think that's too much. But that is wrong, it should be as normal as every other baby picture. So you see I have to remind myself too at times. And I won't stop until more people think like me. I had a facial cleft. In my own simple words it means that when my mum was pregnant, she got ill and that influenced the devoloping of my face. 1 of 1000 people have this. It's quite common. The small tubes in my nose were there because my airways were overgrown. So the first few month I lived in the hospital until it was sure that I breathe on my own. After ten operations I was looking like today. But that's nothing I'm proud of because I only remember the last three. I am proud of my parents who helped me through this. #everyoneisbeautiful

Ilka es originaria de Alemania, a pesar de que durante su infancia y juventud padeció la crítica y burlas de las personas que convivían con ella, decidió salir adelante para mostrar su propio tipo de belleza.

La joven de 26 años padece displasia, que consiste en que gran parte de su piel tiene malformaciones, lo que causa que sus genes muten y los tejidos o células tienen una apariencia poco habitual.

Una modelo con diplasia y actitud

Desde muy pequeña Bruehl fue sometida a toda clase de operaciones para tratar de darle forma a sus fosas nasales, pues había nacido con una malformación en su nariz y labios.

Su mirada luce hundida ya que sus lagrimales no se desarrollaron de manera adecuada, pese a ello, Ilka decidió que cumpliría el sueño de convertirse en modelo.

La joven narra que estar frente a la cámara le ha ayudado a enfrentar su enfermedad con mucha sabiduría.

“Estar delante la cámara me ha enseñado que cada defecto es una parte de ti. Y que no pasa nada. Simplemente tienes que, por contraproducente que parezca, aprovecharlo al máximo. Abrazar mis particularidades a través del mundo de la moda y los posados ha sido una especie de autoterapia”, dice Ilka Bruehl.

YAunque no todos son tan amables con ella como sus seguidores y admiradores, la modelo con displasia no se da por vencida pues continúa haciendo lo que más ama: posar frente a la cámara.


Just some thoughts because I post so many photos of me lately: I was always a very shy person with no self-confidence. Don't worry I don't wallow in self-pity because it is my own decision how I interact with others (I know by now ????). But it wasn't easy to get this in my head. Photography helped me a lot, it was like a therapy. Both ways, to stand in front of a camera and to take photos. It shows me that every defect and mistake is a part of you and that's okay. Make the best of it ✅ So sorry for all the photos, but I need this because this is a long process. I'm on my way but there are still some obstacles to overcome. If you are not interested in this story I totally understand this, but then it is the best to leave my page for a while. And I want to thank you for all your lovely comments. I'm so sorry that I don't answer you at the moment. But every single comment means a lot to me and helps me on my journey. You are great ???? Sorry for this long post, but I had to say this????????
