Hello, I'm Sylvia Mac, a Burn Survivor who is challenging the fashion industry to become inclusive of those with differences and disfigurement.

My campaign involved people with scars, health and skin conditions who were very brave wearing swimwear sponsored by Swimwear365 and photographed by the famous Sophie Mayanne whose project Behind the Scars went viral. With the support of Sharron Davies, I also want to encourage body confidence by sharing my images with leisure centres & help Every Body to Swim without worrying about others staring.

My ex once said to me the first night we spent together after I said "I hate them" (my scars). "You should never hate them. Yes they show that you've struggled with bad times but to me they tell me that despite what has happened to you in the past those scars are proof that you were strong, strong enough to fight through everything and anything and come out the other end. And because of that, I think your scars are beautiful".

I really want to hang out with these ladies, hear their stories, learn how they've become so strong (all the women look incredibly strong) and at peace with their own beauty despite overwhelming and unrealistic beauty standards. Sooo empowering!!!

I have no idea what skin condition she has. Unless it's alopecia. Her skin looks flawless. I hate her a little bit. Lol!
