In the entire life of Enam, she has had to endure the strange looks people give her and to some extent refrain any form of contact with her as if she had a communicable disease.

“People are always asking questions about my skin. They always stare at me and there have been instances when community folks don’t want to board the same bus with you, or have their kids befriend you because they think the condition is contagious” she added.
