I grew up as a minority in a neighborhood and a time when what was portrayed as aesthetically desirable was not possible for me to achieve. When I became a dermatologist, I made it my mission to help people of all skin types feel confident about their reflection in the mirror and help highlight the things that make them uniquely beautiful. I’m proud to advocate for a society which encourages everyone to “Be Your Own Beautiful.” - Dr. William Kwan
