America's Next Top Model contestant, Chantelle Brown-Young, speaks candidly about a rare skin condition that she suffers from called vitiligo. Chantelle, who was diagnosed with the condition at the age of four, saw it begin to form as a white patch on her stomach. She later saw it travel to her hands, knees and face. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, vitiligo is a condition in which skin loses its pigmentation and patches of lighter skin start to appear. Certain individuals may develop a few patches of discolored skin, while others develop more. While vitiligo typically affects the skin, it can develop anywhere we have pigment like hair, eyes and even the inside of the mouth. Vitiligo is believed to affect less than one percent of the global population. It is not a contagious or life threatening condition, but it can be life changing. In 2011, Chantelle spoke about her condition in a YouTube video. She caught the attention of America's Next Top Model creator and hostess, Tyra Banks, on Instagram. It was there that Chantelle was asked to participate in cycle 21 of the show. America's Next Top Model cycle 21 premieres  tonight at 6 P.M. PST/9 P.M. EST on The CW.
