Corinne Labbé, 19, from Montreal, Canada, was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease at ten-years-old and within a month was completely bald. Doctors said her hair would ‘never grow back’, leading her to hide beneath a wig and never discuss her alopecia with friends.

Even though doctors made her lose all hope of her hair ever growing back, Corinne's hair miraculously grew back a couple of years after her diagnosis, which baffled her doctors.

Corinne, an aspiring model, got signed by Dulcedo Management and hopes that her showing her condition will encourage others to have conversations about alopecia.

She says: “I don’t want anyone else to feel the way I did, I want children with alopecia to feel beautiful and worthwhile.”

Alopecia, also known as spot baldness, is a type of hair loss condition that occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles, which is where hair growth begins. Often it results in a few bald spots on the scalp, each about the size of a coin. The damage to the follicle is usually not permanent. Experts do not know why the immune system attacks the follicles. Alopecia is most common in people younger than 20, but children and adults of any age may be affected. Women and men are affected equally.

Give it up for this young bold lady who showed the world how beautiful she is, body and soul, for embracing her uniqueness and teaching a very valuable lesson - accept who you are, the world will follow.
