Christos Kyrgios on YouTube

Christos Kyrgios talks to us about what it was like growing up having Alopecia since he was 5 years old. He meets a young Alopecia sufferer, Omar Abdo, through Instagram. When the two meet at the French Open tennis tournament to watch Christos’ brother Nick Kyrgios play, Omar is inspired to take his hat and wig off for the first time in over a decade. Omar emotionally shares with us the impact this meeting had on his life and how inspired he is now after spending two days with Christos. This is a heartwarming and inspirational story about self actualisation and the understanding that your mind can be your worst enemy as well as your greatest asset.
