Our bodies don’t necessarily define us, but they are a big part of our lives. They’re the way that we navigate and connect with the outside world, and they’re also the way most people identify us. We’re all unique beings, but most of us have general similarities, all being human. However, there are some people who, due to genetics, are born with features that are different from almost everyone else.
