News - 03 Sep `19Lee Thomas: "How I Help People Understand Vitiligo"

New

Feel like getting motivated or just looking for a feel-good news story? There's no better way to take a break from your day than with a fresh cup of coffee and a great TED talk from the most respectable name in vitiligo community.

Watch this incredibly moving TED talk from the vitiligo spokesperson, 4x Emmy Award winner, Fox2 TV entertainment guru, and our best friend, Lee Thomas. His extremely personal talk explores the uncomfortable feeling of vulnerability familiar to every person with vitiligo, and suggests the way out of a daily stress.

Lee shares how he discovered a way to counter misunderstanding and fear around his appearance with engagement, dialogue -- and a smile. "Positivity is something worth fighting for, and the fight is not with others -- it's internal," says Lee. "If you want to make positive changes in your life, you have to consistently be positive."
