I’m the only person in my family who has heterochromia

I’m the only person in my family who has heterochromia. So far I’ve only met one person who has the same eyes as me. It kinda makes me feel special and I never had any bad experiences according to my different eyes. There are even people I’ve known for years who just recently noticed it.

“My mother than became obsessed with curing my left eye of Heterochromia”

I remember first noticing my difference from others when my family was presented with an oil painting of me. It was a gift from my grandmother’s friend who was a painter just like her. It was framed beautifully and was placed on the wall of the living room. At 4 yrs old I noticed the girl who looked like me didn’t have my eyes though. I asked my parents and they just let me know that the painter made my eyes look normal. The painting became the other me the one I was supposed to look like but I didn’t. My mother than became obsessed with curing my left eye of Heterochromia. She was convinced that if she could just find the right diet for me as a child; it would go away. She would routinely examine my eye and was happy when she thought it was fading in color. It never did it just stayed the same but she felt the need to fix me and see results. In school other kids were scared of me they didn’t want to look in my eyes or sometimes sit by me. I always wished there was another person like me; but I never did meet anyone like me. Not until the internet and Facebook came into being. Then it became a sense of relief that there were others. I even found lists of celebrities and historical figures that had it. I was not alone. I often look at the pictures and stories of others like me and cry. They seem like a family of people who don’t know each other but are connected. Another race of mankind who have had to feel what it is like to not be apart of mankind. But, feel empathy for themselves and for the people who will never accept them as normal. I even dreamed that we were called the Jaguar people and were sent here to save mankind from themselves. That we can see and feel things that they have long forgotten. So here’s to hoping that one day when you look at our eyes we can teach you how to see how we see. That the whole universe is a diverse garden and all are welcome.

Heterochromia from UK :)

She is a model I saw her picture on a magazine cover, I have found her name and immediately contacted her 🙂 Her name is Topaz, absolutely gorgeous girl that happen to come to Amsterdam for another photo shoot and joined Heterochromia project as well 🙂

Topaz did not take her lenses out until the very last moment before the shoot. She say she is very insecure about her eyes, but i am sure that one day this beautiful condition will bring her even more fame then she can imagine 🙂

Thank you, Topaz! I am hoping to see you again! 🙂

She was right after all

“When I was a #child, other #children laughed at me.
But my mother told me, “Don’t worry about that.
you will see later they will #compliment you.
I answered her it’s #impossible and she was right after all. 

“it is something who defines me forever, just like my tattoos but even more unique”

When I was a child my grandma used to tell me that her mother’s eyes had two different colours, just like mine. I thought it was cool, it made me feel so proud and special.
Heterochromia was never a problem to me and I don’t understand people thinking it is.
Technically, my eyes have a different quantity of melamine, but to me, Heterochromia is more than that.
It is my great-grandmother’s gift and it is something who defines me forever, just like my tattoos but even more unique.
