Hi and thank you for setting up this AmA! In my hometown— I'm from an SE Asian country as well—I know of siblings, three sisters, who all had albinism. So this is why your post caught my attention. Something I noticed about those girls is that when they hit the teenage years, they all dyed their hair black, penciled in eyebrows and wore dark contacts— basically trying as hard as they can to look more like the people around them. My question is, did you ever feel pressured to alter your appearance to look more 'acceptable' or 'familiar' to people around you?
