At the first glance at one of the most popular models, Jeyza Gary, her skin catches the eye. It is a strange shade and seems to be covered with dark stains.
But this feature is noticeable only on the body. The girl’s face is almost clean and very attractive – she doesn’t even need to use a lot of makeup.
Strange skin is the result of a rare feature called ichthyosis. In patients with this diagnosis, the top layer of the skin constantly peels off. The process resembles the molting of a snake.
Since childhood, the future celebrity had to deal with sidelong glances, and sometimes with outright hostility from others. After all, people were afraid that the girl was contagious, and her peers teased her.
But next to her there was always a person who provided support and protected from attacks.
Jeyza’s mother did not think that her child was somehow worse than others, and always tried to convey this idea to others.
When the girl went to school, her mother did not hesitate to speak to her classmates. She explained that it was not contagious and not dangerous, and asked for understanding.
Thanks to her mother, Jeyza did not become an outcast. She had friends and buddies.
Although in adolescence she was still very complex about her appearance, she began to make up profusely, cover the exposed areas of her body with cream.
But then she outgrew this problem, learned how to properly care for her skin, and fell in love with herself for who she is. And then one of her classmates said that Jeyza needed to become a model.
And the girl seriously thought about it. But the dream of the fashion world seemed unattainable to her.
Jeyza Gary decided not to give up hope and at least try.
The girl ordered several professional photos for a modeling portfolio and began sending them to various agencies. Moreover, she did not limit herself to small and little-known ones, but included even the largest ones in the mailing list.
First, refusals from small agencies rained down. Jeyza was ready for this, on the one hand, but still, on the other, she was a little offended.
She began to lose faith in herself. But suddenly a miracle happened – a positive response came from the most famous modeling agency, Vogue Italia.
And now the girl with a rare skin like a snake has become a real star and the face of many legendary brands.
