It is said that we all are born with a hidden aim in this world. Not all people set an example towards the world and become a role model for others. There are only a few and one of them is Melanie Gaydos. A 28 years old model who is toothless, bald and partially blind. Surprised? But it is true!
Hailing from New York, she is creating a storm in the world of fashion! She is breaking all the norms of a model that are to be skinny, tall or having gorgeous hair. She has a rare genetic disorder called ectodermal dysplasia, which has prevented her teeth, pores, nails, cartilage, and bones from developing.
Even then she rose above to shine like a star! She also has alopecia, and is partially blind after the growth of her eyelashes scratched her eyes! It is said that mountains of impossibilities melt away automatically before a dauntless spirit. Proving this thought right Melanie never stopped to chase her dreams and the result is she became a supermodel.
She has worked with a number of celebrity photographers, including legendary Spanish photog Eugenio Recuenco. You won’t believe singing sensation Miley Cyrus is one of her fans. In 2015 in an interview, she told the media that, she has rejected enhancements – including dentures and wigs – because she is “more comfortable with myself how I am”.
