Image Hosting by PictureTrail.com Brandi has stood out in the crowd all of her life. Some say it’s due to her family “The Darby’s” popularity and hood love. Others say, it’s her tenacity, charismatic outgoing personality. Does this have anything to do with her growing up with albinism and knowing at an early age that she was different? Was she the “weird” girl? Did guys like her? Did friends embrace her? How do you come to a point of acceptance in a society that judges/ridicules what’s “different?” “I have a condition. I am not my condition”, says Brandi. We also have the privilege to have Kelsey Thompson who serves as the Chair of NOAH’s Board of Director. NOAH stands for National Organization for Albinism and Hypopigmentation. Kelsey is a person with albinism. She will educate/inform us on albinism and the benefits to being a member of NOAH. If you know anyone who has albinism be sure to tell them to tune in. DO NOT MISS IT! Be sure to tune into the show August 25, 2010 at 8pm eastern time. www.blogtalkradio.com/embraceliferadio or call in at 347-994-1870
