At first, he had some spots which he used to cover. He says,

‘’ I've had alopecia since I was 3, so quite a few years. I grew up with it and it was always very manageable. I only had spots that were [relatively small] so I always covered it up. I was always very embarrassed about it. Even when I was in my 20s, very few of my friends even knew that I had alopecia. I kept it under wraps. I didn't want to let anyone know and I didn't want it to affect my career or the possibility of me getting hired for a job. So I covered up. I got out of school and got some good jobs, but at that point it started getting worse.’’

Slowly, both of his eyebrows and eyelashes also started falling. At first, he was terrified of his situation but as of now, he is ok with his look. He also encourages other people with the similar condition to accept it.
