I’m Scarred, Not Scared | SHAKE MY BEAUTY

A SCARRED body confidence coach campaigns for other women to embrace both their bodies and scars. From a young age, Michelle Elman had 15 surgeries to correct an obstructed bowel, a punctured intestine, resect a brain tumour and remove a cyst in her brain. Michelle, from London, who also lives with hydrocephalus, quickly became aware of how different her body was to her peers and spent years hiding her scars away. After coming to terms with the trauma her body had been through, Michelle, now 24, decided to bare all and embrace her bikini body.
