The little one was not lucky enough to be born in China, where albinism is still considered a curse. In China, a girl with albinism was abandoned by her parents on the doorstep of a shelter.
As a result, just because of her unusual appearance, the girl was able to build a successful career in the modeling business, reports BBC.
Orphanage workers named the little girl Xueli. The biological parents left no documents next to the little one, so his age is only known approximately.
Due to albinism, Xueli’s skin, hair and iris have almost no melanin pigment. In addition, he only has about 10% of his vision left and his eyes react painfully to bright light.
Around the age of three, Xueli was adopted, after which she and her new parents left for the Netherlands. The baby’s name was left behind, as her adoptive mother is convinced that it is necessary to preserve at least a connection of the girl with her Chinese roots.
Xueli was able to take part in photography for the first time as a model when she was 11 years old. A little later she had a great chance, which she did not miss.
A flurry of ad offers from ad agencies hit Xueli after popular photographer Brock Elbank posted several photos of a girl with an unusual appearance on his social media.
Xueli is already 16 years old, she has become a famous model, and her main goal is to help people who are different from the majority: “I want children with albinism or any other form of disability to understand that they can do what they want.
People around you will say you won’t succeed, but you won’t – you can do anything, you just have to try.
