Chi explored her twenties working as an international dancer. She toured in Africa, Asia & Europe for nearly 3 years. As a native of a small town in North Carolina, Chi knew her passion was to learn more about the vast world and its cultures since childhood. Having eczema her entire life she depended on topical steroids to help manage her condition allowing her somewhat of a normal life. Soon after returning to the states from Bangkok, she stopped using prescribed steroids in hopes of healing without the use of hardcore medicine; little did she know she was about to experience a condition that would change her entire trajectory. Here’s her story about Topical Steroid Withdrawal and how her career as a dancer turned into skin advocacy.
