Nariyana is a first—grader from Yakutia. At the age of 8, the girl has not only already started a modeling career, but also caused a real stir among fashion agencies. They are eager to sign a contract with her, but her parents are still against it: Naryana has just started school, and she does not want to go to the city from the Yakut village where her family lives…
The 8-year-old Naryana of the Sakha people has a mysterious, even fabulous appearance. Nature gave the albino girl porcelain skin, snow-white eyelashes and color-changing eyes, which she usually protects from the sun with dark glasses.
Her appearance attracted everyone's attention after the portraits of the girl were posted on social networks by a photographer from Yakutsk, Vadim Rufov.
Here's what the photographer told reporters: "I found her by chance on Instagram. I saw it in the recommended posts, wrote it directly to yandex.direct. As it turned out, she is a neighbor of my relatives. When talking to her mother, it turned out that it was difficult for the girl to be in the sun, she only wears sunglasses, so they decided to shoot her in the studio. I invited them to Yakutsk, organized a photo shoot. I will continue to photograph her. We communicate with mom every day, photographers offer them cooperation. Although it sounds strange, but for now she only wants to work with me. By the way, a lot of offers come from modeling agencies."
The baby is different from her parents and sister and brother, dark-eyed Yakuts. The reason lies in the absence of melanin in the body, which gives color to the skin, hair, iris and pigment membranes of the eyes. The diagnosis of "albinism" was made to her in the hospital immediately.
The girl's mother, Elena, says: "We didn't put her photos on social networks until her 8th birthday, we didn't show them to anyone. But I always wanted, looking at how friends and acquaintances publish photos of children on their pages, to also tell about their own. I didn't expect that she would arouse such interest. Immediately after opening the page, they began to invite to photo shoots. It was at the beginning of the month. And after the third photo shoot, they became interested in her, literally in one day almost 3,000 subscribers were gained. Naryana wants to open her own YouTube channel, become a blogger, and I think she will succeed. My child is not the only albino in Yakutia, as far as I know, there are three of them. We are friends with families, we meet every summer, we have our own group in Whatsapp. Our children are very different. And we're not related."
In a matter of days after the photos of the unusual girl were published on the Internet, a wave of excitement about the amazing little model rose. Naryana's parents received many offers about advertising, but they do not want to distract the child from the usual everyday life of a first-grader yet. And it's a little difficult to go to the city from the village, there is still a small child in the family, who is only 9 months old.
Naryana herself really likes the idea of becoming a model. And although she is very photogenic and likes to spin in front of the camera, while she is an ordinary child who likes to dance and draw in her free time.
The girl's aunt, Irina, tells: "Naryana is an ordinary child, just a white one. She is very active from an early age, we can say that she is ahead of her peers in development, cheerful, loves to dance, sing, pose. She comes up with all the movements herself."
