It’s a fickle and harsh world out there, and it’s hard to be different when people can be so cruel to each other. Therese Hansson of Malmo, Sweden, did what any of us might; she hid her true nature from others just so she could fit in.

Then one day, she let her real-self shine through and what happened was astonishing.

Therese Thought She Had Cancer At The Age Of 14

Therese suffers from an unusual condition and it led to her thinking that she had cancer when she was just 14 years old.

What happened? All her hair fell out and she was left completely bald. She said, “I was young at the time so I was mostly worried that it was cancer since that’s normally the first thing you think of when you see hair loss, but little did I know that this hair loss only happens after chemotherapy.”

It Wasn’t Cancer, It Was Alopecia

Alopecia is a relatively rare autoimmune condition which causes the body’s immune system to attack the hair follicles. It happens to both men and women and the result is permanent baldness.

No 14-year-old girl wants to handle baldness at school, so Therese became a master of disguise instead. She purchased a wig and wore it everywhere. She admits that she was “good at hiding it.”

She Got Tired Of Hiding It

Then as she grew into her 20’s, Therese got tired of hiding her baldness. So she stopped and came out on Instagram. She says that she’s now confident enough to sport her look anywhere and regularly goes without the wig in public.

She’s also had an incredible result from this step forward. She was an undeniably beautiful woman with a wig on, but she’s absolutely stunning without one. G Management, a modeling agency, headhunted her and signed her up. Now she works for a bunch of brands as a professional model.

It just goes to show that you ought to take a chance on showing the world who you really are. People may react much better than you expect them to.
