There are over 7 billion people living on Earth, all beautiful in their own way. In fact, it is the diversity that makes this world as lovely as it is and accepting the differences is something we should all live by.
Asel and Kamila from Kazakhstan are two sisters who are 12 years apart. Their distinctive appearance steals the hearts of many. Both of them have albinism and look so stunning that they are now part of commercials by numerous companies and many modeling agencies from the country are interested in working with them.
Albinism is a genetic disorder that causes a lack of pigmentation in the skin, eyes and hair. Despite the unique looks, people with albinism may suffer from certain medical conditions such as vision defects and a sensitivity to sunlight.
When Asel was born, her parents were surprised by her skin color. No one in their family had albinism before so her mom, Aiman Sarkitova, told Daily Mail, “When I gave birth to my eldest, genetics were not so developed with us, it is developing only now.”
What was more shocking for the family is that their second daughter, Kamila, shares her sister’s condition. They also have an 8-year-old son who is dark-skinned, a real Kazhan.
Albinism is rare and people who have it may sometimes feel different and alone, but these two sisters are happy to have each other and share their joys and even downfalls in life. We say they are truly stunning.
