“I am now 22 years old and am a full time Beauty Therapist/ Receptionist. Confidence in my line of work is a must. My job is to improve the confidence of my clients, by enhancing the beauty of their appearance. In doing this, I need to be confident with my own appearance.
I went through a stage in my teenage years of covering up my prosthetic eye with a very long side fringe. I was convinced that whenever anybody looked at me, they would notice I was different; my worst fear, they would mock me. For this reason I allowed myself to blend into the background.
Soon I came to realise that this was all in my head. No-one questioned my "fault" and my friends had accepted me for who I was. Over the years, I have grown accustomed to my eye and have, myself, accepted that it is a part of who I am. And I cannot change it.
The dedication Robin has put into perfecting my prosthetic eye is incredible. Nobody even notices it is a prosthesis anymore. This is mirrored by the compliments I receive from people, about my eyes, that aren't aware of what I went through as a child.
I really believe his skills and tentative nature have played a massive part in making me who I am today. I cannot thank him enough. Needless to say, the side fringe disappeared and my confidence blossomed. :)”
