Twins With Albinism Wear Their Condition With Style | SHAKE MY BEAUTY

Posted by Dhruba Shrestha March 02, 2018 :
Fashion-obsessed twins who both have albinism want to inspire people to be proud of the skin they were born in. The chances of a child being born with albinism are one in 17,000 - but the chances of twins being born with albinism is far rarer - the odds are not even known. Identical twins Rosemary and Christina Alubankudi, from New York City, are part of this rare club. The 24-year-olds were born with the rare genetic condition, which is caused by a partial or complete lack of melanin, the pigment, which gives hair, skin and eyes their colour. The sisters aren’t just twins, they are best friends too and through their love of fashion, they want to inspire others to be proud of who they are.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
