Two albino sisters born through non-albino parents who never knew that albinism ran in their family. Now as models, they are quite popular on Insta.
Albinos are still very rare and we still don't know the actual number of people under this condition. Usually, it is due to the inherited genes and little to no melanin produced in the skin. Due to this the skin and hair colour is very little.
Moreover, countries do not keep any record of the prevalence of albinism, that's why its hard to be certain about the number of people. But what can be said for sure is, this, not a common condition and its rare to see even two of the family members undergoing albinism.
Aimen Sarkitova, when she gave birth to her daughter who was born an albino, she didn't even know for sure what albinism was actually."The doctors were shocked, and thought that she was Russian," she told the Daily Mail. "Then I started reading about this matter, I have learned that my children are albinos."
For one to be born an albino, it's not necessary that both or one of the parents should be albino. Sometimes, it's in your ancestors and you don't even have an idea. Same was with Aimen who never knew that albinism ran in her family.
Now, when Aimen gave birth to her son, he was dark-skinned and completely normal. But the third child who was her daughter, she was born an albino too.
Aimen's son when saw her another younger sister like that he became confused and asked many questions. "Until the younger one was born, he did not ask any question. But when Kamila was born, he began to say: 'Mum, why are they like that? Why am I not like them, like my sisters?'
As this condition is completely normal and so was proved by Asel, as became a model at the age of 10. And when blessed with a younger sister, her feed is now full of beautiful poses and she has 30,000 followers on Instagram.
But she shares that there are some challenges too in being an albino as well as a model. She further explains that in the daytime, she needs to be careful and puts on sunscreen and other products to protect her skin. While in the evening, it's completely normal and easy to be outside.
