Finishing up a story about Grace, a eleven-year old girl born with albinism. Grace, shown here at school, is having a difficult time adjusting to her new life. Like any girl her age, she is becoming self-conscious about being different so she alters her look by dying her hair. Grace, her brother Quizzard, also born with albinism, and their parents had to leave Rwanda because of threats to the children's lives. Albino children are especially vulnerable to human trafficking, targeted by witch doctors and their clients who use them in horrific ways like blood letting, sex or body parts, to gain wealth or health.
