ONE OF US: AN AWARENESS CAMAPIGN BY OAM FOUNDATION & EVI_PHOTOGRAPHY

I am an Albino

So what?

Call me whatever you like,

Oyinbo, Afin, Yellow paw-paw…

I can be whatever I want to be

YOU really can’t stop me

I can be a mother, a designer and much more

I can achieve all my dreams

You seem to forget that I could be your brother, mother, sister or any other person close you.

The next time you see me in your neighbourhood, rather than stare at me with disgust and irritation,

Treat me with love, care and respect

Cos that’s what I deserve

I deserve a normal life.

STOP THE DISCRIMINATION AGAINST ALBINOS.

ONE OF US

That white skin

Those bluish sometimes grey eyes

And of course the yellowish or golden hair.

You really can’t help but notice when an albino passes by.

These unique creatures

Where did they emerge from?

Are they ghosts?

Are they angels?

Are they…?

The questions are unending.

So many misconceptions…

Albinism is the absence of melanin that gives human skin, eyes and hair their colour.

Albinos are one of us.

They have dreams, passions, and goals like every one of us.

They have emotions and feelings

They can be whatever they want to be

Albinos are amongst us.

They are everywhere we go;

North, East, West and South.

Let’s look beyond their complexion.

Let’s end this discrimination against albinos.

Let’s embrace them cos in the end, they are ONE OF US.
