welcome to vitiligo – go
Empowering those with vitiligo ~ Paving the path for public awareness and a cure
Hi, everyone! My name is Kareena Sikka and I’m a senior at Issaquah High School. I am 16 years old and I’ve had vitiligo for over ten years. Throughout this blog, I hope to share my various treatments, coping mechanisms, and stories through battling this autoimmune skin disease.
My mission is dedicated towards connecting vitiligo patients from across the world, no matter their age, gender, history, or treatment preferences. Whether someone chooses to undergo treatment or not, we support each other through all the tears and battles, and cheer each other on.
My goal with Vitiligo-Go is to share my various eastern and western vitiligo treatments and experiences. I believe that my posts can increase public awareness about vitiligo and foster a welcoming vitiligo community for all.
As a 16 year old who has had vitiligo for over ten years, I’ve experienced the world through a unique perspective. I hope to share the important values that I’ve learned through my various treatments, including hope, perseverance and motivation when it seems that there is a lack thereof.
