Humans of Kurdistan - South 100

“I remember when I was very young, I was very shy to mix with other children because they would call me the boy with the mismatched eyes!
It got to the point that I wanted to quit school to avoid the repetitive questions from my classmates and teachers. But when I got older and saw other people like myself, I was convinced that I am not the only one.
I have no problem with my sight, the only thing that annoys me is when people see me for the first time they stare at my eyes, which bothers me a bit. That is why I decided several times to wear lenses so that it looks normal to people, but when some people see me and say Mashalah, it is very unique and beautiful, I regret that decision and want it to stay as it is”.
