A Chinese couple left their daughter’s albinism at an orphanage because they thought she didn’t look very attractive.
Despite being rejected by her parents due to her albinism, the baby went on to become a successful model, proving that her unique appearance was something to be celebrated rather than shunned.
Xueli Abbing, a girl born with congenital albinism, lives in the Netherlands.
She was abandoned by her biological parents and left without any information about her birthdate.
Despite this difficult start in life, she has grown to be a successful model and advocate for people with albinism.
Xueli Abbing had an X-ray of her hand in 2019 to estimate her age.
At that time, doctors believed that she was around 15 years old.
When Xueli Abbing was around 3 years old, she was adopted by a European family from the Netherlands, which proved to be a fortunate turn of events for her.
Xueli Abbing first stumbled into the modeling industry at the age of 11, it was an opportunity that presented itself to her by chance.
Xueli’s biological mother contacted a Hong Kong fashion designer, who was behind a campaign called Perfect Flaws.
It was through this campaign that Xueli got her first break in the modelling industry.
Since then, she has become a successful model and has been featured in the pages of the Italian Vogue magazine in 2019.
Xueli now enjoys her work as a model and is confident that she is making a positive impact on the world by breaking stereotypes surrounding people with albinism like herself.
