These siblings share a startling similarity despite being born over a decade apart.
Albinism is a rare genetic illness that leaves its victims with a distinctive appearance due to a lack of pigmentation in the skin, eyes, and/or hair.
Having a child who is albino is quite unusual… which makes the fact that a single Kazakh couple had twin albino children 12 years apart all the more amazing.
Asel and Kamila, two very different siblings, have become successful models.
At 14, Asel is the oldest sibling. Her mother, Aiman Sarkitova, was astonished to learn that her newborn daughter was albino.
“When I gave birth to my eldest, genetics were not so developed with us,” she told the Daily Mail. “It is developing only now. The doctors were shocked.”
The fact that Kamila, their daughter, was born 12 years later with the same illness came as a complete shock.
Seeing these two siblings together is so wonderful and striking that they decided to become a modeling duet.
Asel has been modeling since she was 10 years old, but she has experienced a surge in popularity since bringing along her younger sister, who is 2 years old. The couple has over 33,000 Instagram followers.
Albinism has brought them great success, but it hasn’t been without its challenges. Sun sensitivity and other medical issues are linked to the disorder.
“If I go outside in the afternoon, then I definitely apply sunscreen, put on clothes to protect my skin, headgear or use an umbrella,” Asel said.
“In the evening, when there is almost no sun, it’s much easier for me.”
But no matter what challenges life presents, they have each other.
Albinos are an uncommon enough subset of the population that they may feel isolated from others of their kind, yet these two sisters will always have each other.
With any luck, the public will learn more about albinism and be inspired by the stunning beauty of these models.
“Many people do not know what albinos are,” Asel said.
These two sisters are really beautiful! Please SHARE this story with Family and Friends!
