Today is International Albinism Awareness Day (Fr: journée internationale de sensibilisation à l’albinisme). Most of you are aware that I have a condition called albinism (I am albino) which causes lack of pigmentation in my hair skin and eyes. It also causes poor vision. Albinism is rare and there are many myths and misconceptions about it. In some parts of the world, people with albinism are hunted for their body parts or die from skin cancer at a young age. In honor of International Albinism Awareness Day, feel free to ask me questions that you might have about albinism.
