Before I start the list let me tell you what albinism really is:
Albinism is a result from the inheritance of two recessive infectd genes, that prevent the body from changing the amino acid, tyrosine into pigment or melanin in eyes skin and hair on a person or an animal.
It is estimated that only 1 in 17,000 people are born with this condition,
The people who are suffering from this genetic condition are extremely beautiful.
but as they say, beauty comes with a price and this price,
bring upon them some serious problems ranging from eye problems (such as limited vision, photophobia and involuntary movement of the eyes) to extreme skin sensitivity,
a condition that makes them dangerously susceptible to skin cancer.
As if health problems were not enough, the stigma of demonized beings with which they are labeled in some African societies,
have left them in a situation of a preys in what is a real hunt in the area,
since this image of “cursed” comes attached with several myths, ranging from
That sex with an albino is a cure for HIV to the talismanic power of their dead bodies, capable of overcoming even death. The appalling consequences of such ideas are not hard to imagine…

DIANDRA was born at 22 of October of 1989 (age 47). She grew up in the Bronx, the daughter of African-American parents
Her hair is naturally blonde, her skin and facial hair are white,
her eyes are green, and her lips and nose are clearly African.
Diandra during childhood was harassed at school because of their condition and their parents ended up transferring her to the New York Institute For Special Education ( Special Education Institute of New York ),
where she ended up living with other albinos. As a teenager things started to change, the once-ridiculed young Diandra was now being regularly stopped in the streets and subways of New York by strangers curious about her albinism.
One day while shopping, a young photographer, Shameer Khan, was watching her. He said that she “was beautiful and should model.”
And that’s what Diandra did. After working and doing some testing for two months, she joined Elite Models NY. It was the first time an albino model has signed with one of the major modeling agencies.

He is blind in one eye and works in a center for the hard of sight. A passionate musician, he also released an album called Track Team in 2007.
“I think people want to be rebels in a society that’s very funnel-like, where everybody becomes a lawyer. People want to be rebels, they change how they look. And you can say about me, I’m just a natural-born rebel. My genes are rebels.”
Stephen also works as a preschool aide in a mixed class of sighted and vision-impaired children, several of whom also have albinism.
“I’m with the kids in the morning, and it’s a grounding thing—they don’t know that I’m a model, and that’s an awesome feeling.”
Since he booked the Givenchy campaign and walked in the brand’s Paris show, though, his schedule has gotten tricky.
“It’s just crazy, ’cause I don’t have any time for myself anymore—on the weekend I’m doing modeling stuff, and on weekdays I have to wake up at six o’clock for the kids.
