An albino woman from Mexico who grew up being teased and bullied for her incredibly light skin and hair has finally learned to embrace her beauty — and has made it her mission to get others to see it, too.
Ruby Vizcarra had a rough time with the way she looked while growing up in Guadalajara, Mexico. The kids at school didn't understand her condition — and really, she didn't know a whole lot about it either.
But now she has made herself the local poster child for albinism, and that poster is a pretty glamorous one. Profiled by Yahoo, the 24-year-old is pursuing a career as a model, and is showing off rather than covering up what makes her different.
