Meet Lumiere! The Beautiful Orphan Girl From Cameroon

Woman on Instagram

Have you seen this photo? She is all over my Instagram timeline and on one of the pictures, her back story was actually shared.

Her name is Lumiere she is an orphan born in Africa, Cameroon to be specific. In addition to her beautiful eyes and skin, she was also born deaf.

Lumiere seems to have the genetic mutation called Waardenburg syndrome where children are born with ‘abnormal’ pigmentation in their skin, eyes and sensorineural deficits.

This syndrome is common in Africa and any other areas where African migration is common like the Caribbean! The picture was shared because of how unique she looks with the message that you should love the skin you are in.

She is absolutely stunning!
