When you’re young, you actively seek to fit in with everyone else as best you can. If you want to survive high school without any persistent drama and bullying, you naturally believe that blending in with the crowd is your best bet. However, for some people, this isn’t always a feasible option.
People who were born with certain distinctive features really have no choice in the matter and the exclusion and spitefulness that often follows them around can do a lot of damage to their self-worth.
Marimar Quiroa used to have such little self-confidence that she would insist on hiding her face when she was in public, but now she proudly shows off her beauty to her thousands of online followers.
Learn more about the make-up and beauty vlogger here:
The 21-year-old California native was born with a facial tumor known as cystic hygroma, a condition that has forced her to communicate with others using sign language.
However, she has now decided that she won’t let anything prevent her from realizing her potential, including her tumor.
She has truly redefined what we see as “classically beautiful” and seeks to emphasize self-love amongst young people
“To me, beauty means to accept yourself for who you are and to ignore what other people tell you,” the young student explained. “You show your beauty how it is, it doesn’t matter if you have a different looking face, accept yourself how you are.”
Her mother, Maria, was completely unaware that her daughter had the condition until after she was born.
“It has affected my mouth since before birth,”Marimar said. “Before, my face and head were bigger and I went through the process of many surgeries over several years to shrink my face and mouth to what you see today.”
“It affects me in several ways. I cannot speak, I breathe through a hole in my throat, I eat through a tube in my stomach and the hearing in my right ear is diminished.”
Since she was very young, Marimar has undergone a number of procedures with the aim of shrinking the size of the tumor.
However, Marimar has now decided to embrace what she was born with and feels much happier for it.
“When I was younger I would talk to myself in the mirror,” she recalled. “I would tell myself I was beautiful. I would encourage myself and list all the things that were good about me and it built my confidence through the years. What I like about makeup and beauty is imagining new looks, especially around the eyes, and showing people they’re beautiful no matter what.”
We wish Marimar nothing but the best for her future and hope she continues to inspire people and help them realize that they really are beautiful.

One of the best parts about being a kid is that you’ve not got any real stress in your life. Sure, you might get upset when everyone else in the schoolyard has the latest pair of sneakers and you don’t, but, generally speaking, your life is carefree compared to when you’re an adult.
The moment you’re independent of your parents, you have a whole world of problems to navigate – like finding a decent job, making the rent each month, and maintaining a social life. With so many big stresses hanging over you, the little can ones seem that much greater too.
Check out the video below if you want to be stressed out immediately:
We all know what it’s like to have a seemingly small stress tip us over the edge as adults. The other day, for example, I bought a delicious looking bag of bagels only to discover that their sell-by date was the next day. Ergo, I’d just wasted some of my hard earned cash. Not cool.
So, without further ado, here are 24 pictures that are almost guaranteed to stress you out immediately…
1. This precariously balanced glass
It’s an accident just waiting to happen.
2. TVs should always be placed on a flat surface
I don’t like the idea of watching TV with my head tilted.
3. Talk about hanging on by a thread
Or, should I say, wire…
4. The most terrifying construction site you’ll ever see
How they even made this hole is beyond me.

We live in a world where people are constantly scrutinized for their appearances. While the body positivity movement has done a lot of good, there is no denying that no matter who you are, society still exerts a degree of pressure on you when it comes to the way you look.
Take a stroll down any high street, for example, and you will only see perfectly featured mannequins in store windows and almost every ad in existence features a model with picture-perfect skin and features, which is enough to make most people feel inadequate.
This pressure to look good is particularly great for celebrities, whose appearances are more scrutinized than most. Every fashion mishap they make is mercilessly taken apart in gossip columns and that’s not to mention the things they can’t easily change, like their skin.
Check out the video below where Courteney Cox explains how this affected her self-esteem:
One of the many victims to this media epidemic is Friends star Courteney Cox. As she eloquently explains in the video above, being in the public eye meant that she felt greater pressure than most to consistently look youthful, despite the fact that she was getting older.
Having achieved international fame on Friends, which she was cast in when she was just 30 years old, the now 53-year-old grew older in the spotlight, and this led to her having cosmetic surgery in an attempt to halt the effects of aging on her face.
Instead of making Cox look younger, however, the work she had done had the paradoxical effect of making her look even older than she was, and, as she admits herself in the video above, resulted in photographs which caused her to think that he looked horrible.

As tensions between Russia and Western nations continue to rise, Syria’s horrific seven-year civil war has almost become a stage for the world powers to show off their advanced arms and weaponry and military abilities.
Last Saturday, the US, UK, and France launched strikes against specific targets in three sites in Syria. This occurred after a week of warnings that the world powers would retaliate following an illegal chemical attack on civilians in Douma, a rebel enclave.
Learn more about how it all unfolded:
“I ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapon capabilities of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad,” Trump said announced at the White House.
Air strikes from these three nations obliterated a Syrian chemical weapons factory, prompting Donald Trump and Theresa May to declare it as a “Mission Accomplished” and a necessary move as far as restoring peace in the Middle Eastern nation goes.
Unfortunately, the move has also served to provoke Russia, and more specifically, Vladimir Putin.
According to a statement which was released by the Kremlin: “Vladimir Putin, in particular, stressed that if such actions committed in violation of the U.N. Charter continue, then it will inevitably lead to chaos in international relations.”
Of course, the idea of creating “chaos” where international relations with Russia is concerned is something that the world powers want to avoid as far as possible.
However, according to one alleged psychic from Bulgaria, this won’t be possible. Her name is Baba Vanga and she is known as “The Nostradamus of the Balkans”.

One of life’s greatest experiences is becoming a parent. Those fortunate enough to fall pregnant get to experience a journey like no other, which is filled with ups and downs, as they patiently await the arrival of a life that will change their own forever.
After spending nine months preparing for parenthood, mothers then have to give birth. While partners and family members are usually on hand to lend support, it can be a difficult and painful experience that leaves them shaken and emotional once it’s finally over.
Check out the video below for some powerful photographs of this special experience:
To shed light on this experience, the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers (IAPBP) holds an annual competition for the best childbirth photographs. Featured in the video above are last year’s winners and featured below are this year’s.
What makes each of these images so incredible is that they all tell a story, documenting in a single image a journey nine months in the making. It’s impossible not to get a strong sense of how powerful this experience is, as well as the relief and joy it ultimately results in.
1. A celebratory kiss
Partners are overwhelmed with pride when women give birth, and so they should be.
2. Five brand new toes
It’s amazing what the human body can create.
3. Siblings meet for the first time
The first face this baby saw was a curious one.
4. It’s not just mothers who have something to smile about
Midwives play a crucial role in this journey too.

An incident that is being called both racist and sexist recently took place inside a Cheddars restaurant in Macron, Georgia. A 72-year-old woman has been arrested after she assaulted two female black soldiers. One of whom was pregnant.
The elderly woman, named Judy Tucker, became agitated after the two soldiers blocked her from entering a handicapped parking space. The incident was captured on camera by onlooker Lakeycia Ward, who uploaded the footage to social media.
Check out the shocking footage for yourself below:
Ward wrote, “This gentleman and his mom was hostile about the two soldiers not waiting for them to reverse back into their handicap parking spot for her handicapped husband instead they went around and proceeded to park in there own separate parking spot (sic).”
“So he then followed them inside the restaurant being verbally abusive calling them black lesbians shouting ‘The military lets lesbians serve?’ So at that point, I start recording and here’s the video (sic).”
Allegedly Tucker’s son called the two soldiers “gay black b****es”. In response to being told that one of the women is pregnant, Tucker shouted that her husband is handicapped. She can also be heard in the video yelling, “Put that phone down! You do not have the right to take a picture of me!”
Further footage shoes Tucker crying as she was arrested by police. She was charged with simple battery and was taken to Bibb County Jail.
She has since been released on bail.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, then you’ll have heard of the notorious Cinderella Escorts. The agency consistently hit the headlines after a number of young women came forward to reveal that they were selling their virginities through them for astronomical amounts of money.
These claims were backed up on the agency website with photographs of the girls holding up handwritten signs that read Cinderella Escorts as well as a number of scantily clad photographs. Each girl listed reportedly had to undergo a medical examination to prove her “innocence” too.
However, it has now been claimed that not all was what it seemed with Cinderella Escorts, which reportedly promoted a woman’s ability to chose what she wanted to do with her body. A former “virgin” has spoken out, saying that it was an elaborate ruse for sex trafficking.
Check out the video below where the 19-year-old reveals her shocking allegations:
While some might argue after watching the video above that Aleexandra Kefren should have known what she was getting herself into when she agreed to be interviewed on national television, her claims have been further substantiated by adult movie director Harriet Sugarcookie.
The director, who works for Sugarcookie.com, claimed that the publicity Kefren generated for Cinderella Escorts was used by its unscrupulous owner, Alexandros Kallinikidis, to encourage young and naive girls to get into seemingly one-time prostitution.
However, instead of being paid vast amounts of money for their virginity, and in some cases, as was reported, getting to sleep with A-list stars, they found themselves trafficked into sex work which could potentially see them sleep with eight men a night in European brothels.
Cinderella Escorts, however, has hit back at Kefren’s claims and said that the sale of her virginity was real, but it fell through at the last minute because she broke the terms of her contract with the agency by having a boyfriend.
