Woman Who Was Called A Monster For Her Head-To-Toe Hairy Moles Might Be The Next Miss Universe

20-year-old Evita Patcey Edgar Delmundo is no stranger to bullying. When she was a child, cruel classmates called her “monster” and “chocolate chip cookie” because of the hairy dark brown moles and birthmarks that cover her entire body, but now the Malaysian, who works part-time at a local cat cafe, is defying the people who taunted her by auditioning for Miss Universe.

“In primary school, no one wanted to be friends with me,” she said. “I remember a teacher having to ask two girls to accompany me during recess, and they were whispering ‘why do we have to treat her like a princess?’ It broke my heart. I told them that they don’t have to follow me and they went off immediately. Basically, I was a lonely girl.”

She told Elle magazine that she learned to accept herself for who she was after attending a church camp when she was 16. “I really learned how to love myself and communicate with others,” said Evita, who had once considered having her moles removed. “This was probably the first time I truly started accepting who I was, how I look.”

Her audition for Miss Universe Malaysia was on June 17, and she’s currently waiting to find out if she’s progressed to the next round or not. But even if she doesn’t succeed, Evita says that it won’t dent her newfound confidence and she’ll continue to enter other beauty pageants in the future. “I’m just keeping my fingers crossed. If I don’t get through, there’s always another platform.” (h/t: dm, elle)

Although said with mean intentions, "chocolate chip cookie" is a pretty nice nickname to have ;D

There is a non-invasive way to get rid of these mutated skin cells. I use it to remove moles, and warts, from my face and neck. Its 'Apple cider vinegar'. It takes time, but it is guaranteed to kill off the mutated cells, along with the base mutation. All of these mutations originate from a single skin cell, that grows like crazy. You can either apply the vinegar to a piece of gauze that is taped over the mutation, or you can dab the vinegar on a continual basis. The gauze application is quicker, but it shows. Continual dabbing takes more time, but it too kills the mutated cells. Here's the Google search page: https://www.google.com/search?client=opera&q=remove+mole+with+vinegar&sourceid=opera&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8
