Being different is a gift! It does not matter if you are tall/short, or male/female. It does not matter your skin tone or the color of your hair. Everything about you is something special. You should be proud of the person that you are, because you are amazing. The other day, I was talking to a friend and the topic of Albinism came up. I learned that albinism is a congenital disorder characterized by loss of pigment in the skin, hair, and eyes. The hormone Melanin is not produced in the body which Is responsible for the loss of pigment in your skin, hair, and eyes.
People with this disorder may look a little different from people who don’t have the disorder.
This photo is not mine. I have very graciously gotten this from, Danielle Rushkoski with From the Heart Photography Click here to view her beautiful photo’s. she is with Their skin is very light, like a pink or white tone. The eyes might be a light blue or brown, the color of your hair is extremely light, like a white color. I then started to think about photographing children like this. Just because they are a little different does not mean they should shy away from things that might make them feel good about themselves. As I said before, being different is a gift!
People can be mean! Not only do they criticize people by the way they look, they judge people on who they are as a person. This is not right. I would love to live in a world where people were nice to each other. Children with this disorder may look a little different, which causes their self-esteem to be an issue.
Children should not have to go to school worrying about if their “friends” are going to accept them. The reason I am talking about this is because a friend of mine, has a little girl who suffers from albinism. Her confidence should be boosted and I want to help. She should see for herself how beautiful she really is. However, they live in another state so it would be difficult for me to get to them. I would absolutely love to do what I wanted to do for this little girl. I want my photo’s to make children feel better about themselves, and give them the confidence they need to strive.
