Nora, Shem, & Ezra Against the Albino Stigma
The three child models are fighting the stigma one catwalk at a time, beating the bullies, and raising awareness for albinism. Nora and Shem were born with the condition that removes pigment from skin and hair while their brother Ezra has brown skin and black hair just like their parents.
The family had to get used to being stared at and even bullied but they have always been in this together. Just recently, they managed to turn their unique looks to their advantage.
A Promising Modeling Career from an Early Age
All the siblings are currently modeling for top firms such as Primark and Nike. Nora has even graced the pages of Italian Vogue. It’s not just a career as the child trio is dedicated to raising awareness of albinism and campaigning for quality for all skin colors.
Maria Jones, the albino siblings’ mother, shares that people wouldn’t believe Nora and Shem are her children, nor that Ezra is their brother. As being the youngest, Nora often used to home crying because other children were bullying her.
The mom also said that they’ve all gotten used to being stared at and added that “now when people stare at them it’s while they’re strutting down a catwalk.”
Her eldest child, Shem was the first albino in the family and Maria wasn’t surprised to have more kids with the same condition. She has also set up a charity – Voice of Albinism, to raise awareness. This is also a way of ensuring her children that no matter the condition one has, they can still do anything that they want to.
