Courageous actress and model Celina Leroy is reclaiming the facial birthmark that made her the target of childhood and school bullies. Although she spent more than $15,000 and two decades trying to conceal the port wine stain birthmark, Celina's now proudly modeling makeup-free! She hopes her example will inspire other young people who are struggling to overcome the challenges a birthmark presents.

We're absolutely thrilled that RightThisMinute hosts get to meet the brave model herself and learn more of Celina's inspiring tale.
