IAMA 21 year old Asian girl with Albinism. AMA
Posted here first, but it got filtered right away. :/
I live in California and was born with oculocutaenous Albinism.
Just created a new reddit account so there's nothing to see at all, but here's my proof:

EDIT - 2:08 PM PST - Woah. I didn't think I'd get this many questions! I'm going to put down the laptop and go have some lunch. I'll be back later today. Maybe I'll answer a few from my phone when I get the chance as well. Thanks everyone! :)
EDIT - 7:00 PM PST - Forgot to mention that I'm back. Answering as many questions as I can. I can't believe I made front page! Thanks so much to everyone for the support. <3
FINAL EDIT - Thank you all so, so much for spending the day with me on Reddit. I've had a lot of fun talking to you guys. You rule!!!
I'll try to answer more questions that might stand out to me. I'll also be responding to as many PMs as I can. I honestly was not expecting this much response and so many kind words. I'm not used to hearing such nice compliments and I'm seriously so flattered, i dont even know how to process it all, but thank you so much. I really appreciate the support.
Also, quite a few people with Albinism and/or vision impairments have been reaching out to me for information or advice regarding how to deal with or cope with these types of issues. I don't have all the answers, but I don't mind chatting if you shoot me a PM. I'll try to respond as best as I can.
Thanks again, everyone! Take care. :)
