“I am so thankful of my heterochromatic eyes. I speak, love and smile with them. They have become my distinctive beauty and strength in self belief.”

“While the kids were just curious, it sometimes made me feel like an animal in a zoo”

I love my eyes! Although, when I was younger I quickly became self conscious of the attention I would receive as a result of my eyes. I have memories from when I was at school of kids surrounding me to try get a better look at my eyes. While the kids were just curious, it sometimes made me feel like an animal in a zoo or something! The comments I receive about my eyes are always positive, and always have been. Generally people find them interesting and want to know how my eyes came to be that way. I remember one boy from school never believed me when I said my eyes were natural, and was convinced that I wore contact lenses. It became a bit of a game trying to convince him otherwise! ūüôā I am lucky that my eyes never resulted in me been bullied or anything like that

 

“Blessed are those who see beauty in imperfection, for you teach the world to see through different eyes”

heterochromia_project2Back when I was young people would ask me why my eyes were the way they are.
I just responded that I had two souls, or that I had eaten my twin when I was in the womb, or that on my planet this was very normal.

Blessed are those who see beauty in imperfection, for you teach the world to see through different eyes. -Jamiro Oort 2017
