It is estimated that one in 17,000 people on our planet has albinism. This genetic mutation is characterized by poor pigment production.
Albinism is very rare among dark-skinned people worldwide.
However, the fair complexion, blonde hair, and green-brown eyes of this African-American girl are the result of albinism.
Her name is Diandra Forrest, and she is a well-known model. Apart from her typical facial features, her appearance doesn’t show signs of her African heritage.
The girl was born in the United States in 1989. Her brother also has albinism.
In her childhood, the girl was teased by her classmates.
The pressure was immense, and her parents had to take her out of public school. Diandra continued her education with private tutors.
But fortunately, everything turned out well. The girl grew up, and one day, while she was running errands, she was noticed by the renowned photographer Shameer Khan in a store.
Shameer invited Diandra for a photoshoot. When he posted the girl’s photos on the internet, people admired her extraordinary appearance.
Her photos went viral, and the girl received several invitations from modeling agencies.
It is very common for people with albinism to have vision problems. But Diandra is fortunate and doesn’t have vision issues.
Today, she is a well-known model with a unique appearance.
