“My childhood was hard. And lonely. So I created my own world with heroes, dragons etc and I find my passion for theater. Thanks to that, I learnt to accept myself and to see an advantage to have a difference.”

 

One day, i open my eyes. One week after, one of the blue eyes i had turned to a dark brown. It surprised my family which love them immediately. It wasn’t a surprise for me. Everyday in the mirror, i saw a girl with different eyes. It were normal for me. But when i started school… I saw that no one have the same eyes like mine. Children didn’t understand and taught that i was a monster or an alien. A lot of children of my age didn’t want to play with me. But others give me a chance. Years after years, I’m feeling alone even if i had few friends. I was convinced that i was adopt, or an alien, or a Nature’s mistake. My childhood was hard. And lonely. So I created my own world with heroes, dragons etc and i find my passion for theater. I follow my passion in a theater school now to become actress. Thanks to that, i learnt to accept myself and to see an advantage to have a difference. I was not afraid of others and assume my difference. Since that point, people comes to me, around my 18 years. And opinions have change. People start to tell me that it is wonderful and beautiful. But i’m feeling alone because in my little town in the north of France, I was the only one with hétérochromia. I thought that I was like Clark Kent, arrived in a meteorite rain, on a ship ! And facebook gives me breath. I found a lot of groups with a LOOOOT of people around the world like me ! I was not alone any more. I was so happy… That day and today that you read my article.

My history isn’t spectacular or uncommon. I know that everywhere on earth, there are a lot of heterochromians or people with differences who are afraid and convinced like i was that they are monsters or mistakes.

No ! You aren’t ! It is a Nature’s gifs to you. You are beautiful and you are not like all the others. you are you. be proud of it.

And more important : You are not alone.

We are all here, like you : different and proud.
