The abandoned child that became a model

The rare genetic condition causes a lack of pigment which makes Xueli’s skin and hair very pale and also makes her extremely sensitive to sunlight. But looking different led Xueli to her modelling career. Now aged 16, she has graced the pages of Vogue and fronted campaigns for top designers. The staff at the orphanage named me Xue Li. Xue means snow and Li means beautiful.
