How often we admire models and celebrities who manage to look much younger than their years. So in the case of Sara Geurts, everything happened exactly the opposite: the 26-year-old model looks like 50 years due to its rare genetic disease.
Sara Geurts was only 10 years old when she was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome – a connective tissue disease that slows down the production of collagen.

Only when Sarah was 23 years old , did she learn to accept her wrinkles
“My skin was my biggest complex,” said Sarah.
“But now I think this is my feature.”
“Every imperfection that you have is individual, and it tells a story about you and your struggle”
She believes her mission is to change our vision of beauty standards.
“On your way you will meet people who will be afraid of you”
“You are different. People do not know how to react or how to accept someone who is not like everyone else. ”
“Surrounding people will try to make you feel … strange or wrong. I’m here to give you some good advice: just send them. ”
