Modeling Career Helped A 22-Year-Old Man Accept His Rare Illness
When you are different from others, accepting yourself as you are can sometimes be a complicated task. It is especially tricky in a psychological way because your interaction with the world depends directly on this. This is exactly what 22-year-old Brooks Ginnan from New York had to go through.
The guy was born with a rare genetic disease – ectodermal dysplasia. It is manifested in the abnormalities of hair, teeth, and sweat glands, and affects other aspects of life.
It wasn’t comfortable for him to be among his peers with such an unusual appearance as a child. He hated looking in the mirror. Once Brooks grew older, he became seriously interested in music. He plays the guitar and writes lyrical songs. He is quite a famous person in his creative surrounding and a frequent guest at music festivals.
Recently, Ginnan found a new direction for self-realization – he was invited to act as a model for fantasy photo sessions.
After that, he was also invited to star in the short film – Seven of Diamonds.
