Aiesha Robinson    

Founder of Born to Rise & Model

When Aiesha Robinson was first diagnosed with vitiligo at 18 years old, she felt alone and had no one to turn to. Vitiligo is a rare skin condition that causes patches of skin to lose pigment in certain areas. While it isn’t overtly harmful, in a world with such unrealistic beauty standards, self-acceptance can be easier said than done. However, the Montreal native used adversity as motivation to create something positive.

Born To Rise is a non-profit organization centered around storytelling and turning negatives into positives. It offers education on vitiligo, confidence and anti-bullying messaging through its social media platforms, speaking engagements, and an annual Born to Rise Show in Montreal.
