International Albinism Awareness Day is here!!!

 
I should be sleeping but I’m so excited that today has come. Today we celebrate Albinism. I am overcome with emotion. Never could I have envisioned a movement such as this where the world gets to unite with people with albinism to celebrate, to stand proud, to bring awareness and education about this condition. 
Just a year ago I attended a NOAH national conference for the first time. For me the experience was life changing. I had never encountered other African American PWA’s. Throughout the weekend I marveled at the similarities we shared as well as the many differences. New friendships were formed. My life has been enriched and I am forever thankful that I trusted myself and went.
I will post after the BBQ I’m hosting in honor of the day. Thank you for taking this daily journey with me.
