My name is Penny Loker, I hail from Canada and I’m 31 years young!
I have been given this amazing opportunity to produce a column that express my own unique views. It came about in the most unusual way. I was recently featured on a CNN article and from there bloomed new friendships and for me a new way to relate to the world.
Let me tell you about myself. I was born with a facial difference a combination of 2 birth defects one called Goldenhar syndrome and the other called left hemifacial microsomia and although I don’t see that this solely defines who I am it most defiantly colours my view of the world. A lot of what I write will have this as a theme may not be forefront but I always wright with this filter on.
