Last 13th of June has been International Albinism Awareness Day and our model Jordan had the chance to talk about his personal experience as an albino person and the importance of raising awareness about the issue on Channel 5 News.
Jordan had previously talked about albinism to Asos Magazine saying: 'I'm mixed race – my mum is white British and my dad is of Caribbean heritage. I was born albino with light skin and hair due to a lack of pigment. I've never been shy but whereas now I'm happy to be unique, as a kid I wanted to fit in. I'd never worn make-up before modelling, since then I've had some extravagant looks. Social media showcases individuality, but it's also a popularity contest. It definitely affects young people not seeing people who look like them. I'd love to see more albino representation and be the one to make it happen.'
