Did you happen to see “In Your Face” on Australian Story recently?
It was the story of Robert Hodge, a man who was born with a tumor where his nose should be and with severely deformed legs.
Throughout the story (which you can read more about here) Robert talks about living a life that’s defined by his looks.
“It’s hard to know how much different I am from normal people,” Robert explained.
“There have been physical challenges simply getting through life. And you know, there have been reactions to my face and that sort of thing. It’s been very defining,” he said.
