“Different” Beauty: Albino Models Who Are Changing The Fashion World
Albino people have always been grabbing our attention. In Dark Ages, they got burned at the stake for being different, traveling circus used them as an exotic exhibit item to make money. Even these days in Africa they get mercilessly killed and dismembered, their body parts are used for making potions for voodoo practice.
In case you are wondering, albinism is a genetic condition that is associated with the lack of melanin pigment formed in the skin, hair, and eyes. This rare disease still remains a mystery for scientists and doctors. Albinism is inherited and cannot be cured. The maximum the doctors can do is to help people who suffer from this disorder to deal with their health issues. And they have tons of them.
Being different is difficult. Life of these people is an endless fight for life, health, and for being accepted. But being different doesn’t mean to be a freak.
