“In primary school, no one wanted to be friends with me,” said Evita Delmundo. “It broke my heart. I was a lonely girl”
Classmates called her “monster” and “chocolate chip cookie” because of the hairy dark brown moles and birthmarks that cover her body
But now she’s defying those who taunted her by auditioning for Miss Universe!
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 was on June 17 and she’s now waiting for the results. We’re all crossing our fingers!
