Plump girls, short girls, girls with skin defects and other problematic moments — everyone has a chance to become successful models. Yes, the world of beauty has recently dictated new rules.
This happened to the German model Ilka Brühl. Once she endured the teasing of her peers, and now she has become a popular model, which is compared with a fabulous unearthly creature that came to us from a distant planet.
Ilka was born with a rare defect – a cleft face. She had to endure many operations, but she did not stop loving life.
From a young age, Ilka endured unflattering remarks addressed to her, but now she has wiped her offenders’ eyes.
Ilka’s life changed a few years ago when a photographer friend invited her to pose for him.
The girl really liked the result, and the positive comments under the pictures only convinced her that there are no ugly people.
She managed to turn her shortcomings into advantages. And now Ilka is one of the most sought-after models of our time.
“Firstly, I want to remind you that there are no ugly people in the world. Each person is unique and beautiful in their own way.”
The model shares her story with others so that other people with a problematic appearance learn to accept themselves.
“It just so happens that I was born with a facial cleft, which left my nasal airways underdeveloped and malformed.”
“In addition, the lacrimal canal was underdeveloped on the right side, so tears constantly rolled down my cheek, leaving wet tracks on the skin.”
She encourages people to become bolder and stronger and not worry about their appearance.
After all, all our fears and problems are only in our heads.
People like Ilka are said to be “terribly beautiful”, as they managed to destroy age-old stereotypes of beauty.
