People with albinism are nowadays often found on the covers of glossy magazines and catwalks.

One of those people is model Sean Ross. The young man was born in New York in 1991.

Like all albinos with African roots, Ross all his childhood faced with the problems of socialization: peers did not like a particular guy, teased and sometimes even beaten.

As a teenager, Sean showed an interest in dance art and took lessons at the Alvin Lee theater company for five years. It was there that in 2008 a young man was noticed by agents of Djamee.

In 2009, a young albino appeared on the famous show "Top Model in American Style", where he received the official status of the world's first albino male, who became a professional model.

After appearing on the Tyra Banks show, Sean received even more attention to his persona and played a role in the short film made by Joan Lemoine, for which he was awarded the first prize in the competition from Italian Vogue.

During his career, Sean managed to play in several music videos of famous artists. Albinos collaborated with:

  • Katy Perry,
  • Kanye West,
  • Lanoi Del Rey,
  • Gold Fields Group
  • Beyonce and many others.

In addition to modeling and acting career, Ross is engaged in charity and social activity. A young man supports people with albinism, and helps them to join the community and accept themselves.

The path of the first male albino who conquered the modeling business with its unusual appearance was thorny. It was his act that served as an example for many other people suffering from a unique disease, and gave them hope for a better future.
