Canadian national rugby 7s player Olivia Apps lost her hair at a young age to alopecia which was difficult to deal with growing up. However, it taught her a valuable lesson about loving yourself and being happy in your own skin.

“It came with not just feeling like I was less beautiful in my face but I felt like I had to make up for it with my body.”

Apps found confidence on the pitch despite not fitting the ‘classic’ image of a rugby player. Feeling comfortable and proud of her body came with playing and training more, something that wasn’t always second nature for Apps.
