Right from birth, Ngo Thuy Quynh (SN 1998, Hanoi) was different from other children her age. From hair, eyebrows, eyelashes are all white; Her white skin burns easily and her eyes are shaken and her eyeballs are very weak in the light, so she always has to run away from the sun.
“In the eyes of outsiders, I can be seen as a burden when my parents are not perfect and happy. I understand that this is something that can’t be changed, so I don’t expect miracles, I decided to make this anomaly different.” Quynh said.

”I have received quite a lot of positive feedback from everyone. They commented that she’s so pretty…(laughs)…turns out that albinism isn’t that scary, has its own beauty. After that, there were friends with albinism who texted me: Thank you, thanks to your story, I have more confidence in myself. Since then, I have shared the difficulties with them.” Quynh proudly shared.

The girl who once closed herself, was afraid of life, now bravely opened the door and entered the new world. With that unique beauty, Quynh became the first albino model in Vietnam.
”Becoming a photo model can be considered a reckless decision for myself. The first thing is probably that my eyes have to be exposed to a lot of light, while having nystagmus, it is very difficult to meet the mental requirements of the eyes. Sometimes I also go to the pages to see how to pose to make me feel more confident every time I take a photo.Quynh said.
