Episode #5: with Super Model and Activist Diandra Forrest on owning your identity and skin color

This episode is very special as we tackle a 'new' difference here on the T-Factor, and it is Albinism. Diandra is the biggest female model today who has this condition and she was gracious enough to go deep in teaching us all about Albinism and how she pulled through her years of bullying and rejection.

. Diandra is the face of Wet N Wild beauty products campaign. She's also on the cover of Ebony magazine and uses her voice to raise awareness on Albinism.

. Watch her TEDx Talk here.

. Appears in not one but two Beyonce Videos!! Find out how it was to work with the queen herself in the Podcast.

. She works with the Salif Keita Global Foundation to protect the rights of children with albinism in Africa. She is also the UN ambassador of the International Albinism Awareness Day which is June 13th.
