My Skin

Fall 2011

Emily Batista was born with a rare skin disorder that caused her to grow up experiencing bullying, shame and profound depression. Surrounded by love from her family, and friends she has been able to turn that pain into strength – as she shares with us what it’s like to live in her own skin.

Mentor: Amy Lawday
