The eight-year-old albino, known only as Nariyana, lives in Yakutia with her family. She was born in Yakutia in Siberia. The other members of her family all have black hair. Her family isn’t the only ones who think she is special. Even though she is only eight years old, she is overwhelmed by calls from modeling and advertising agencies. They all want her on their books because of her unique looks. The world has nicknamed her ‘Snow White’ because of her white complexion.
Locals have described her as strikingly blonde’ with ‘skin like porcelain’, but her mother says that she doesn’t want her daughter to start a modeling career just yet.
Here are some photographs of ‘Snow White’, capturing her pale features and her shiny white hair. She is the first albino in the family, her parents Elena and Albert say. Elena mentions that Nariyana may try modeling later on in her life, but that she is going to focus on her childhood right now. Her newest hobbies are dancing and drawing.
In one of the photographs, you can also notice the striking contrast between her 14-year-old sister, Karina, who has dark hair. The family are ethnic Yakuts and have dark hair as well.
