In her own words, “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” Enam attended basic school at Keta Anlo State School after which she later went to Keta Business Senior High School and subsequently had her tertiary education at Keta Nursing and Midwifery training college. Vitiligo is not a skin condition whose cause is unknown and is also not curable although some other people use treatment therapies.
