Nine-year-olds She’riq Elliott and Te’riq Elliott, from Pembroke Pines, Florida, were born as twins but She’riq was born with albinism but her brother Te’riq was born without the condition.
Watch the video below:
She’riq and Te’riq always leave strangers confused and they ask them several questions because they look completely different from each other despite being twins.
She’riq said: “People sometimes don’t believe we are twins.We’re totally different.
He’s funnier than me and I’m just kind of calm.Everybody comes up to me and they’re like, “Why are you lighter than your brother?” So I tell them. ”
Te’riq added: “I help my sister because my friends always tell me, “Hey Te’riq why is your sister a different type of color?” and then I just explain it and they’re like, “Oh that’s cool.”‘
The twins’ parents Sherria and Terry Elliott Sr also have a 20-year-old daughter Sheterria who also has albinism.
Sheterria helps her sister She’riq to cope with having albinism because she has gone through all the hard times. She educates her and tells her that it’s not a disease.
Sheterria said: “I would tell her how to respond to certain remarks, be nice, but let them know what it is that you have.”
Dad Terry Sr., said: “We didn’t know one of the twins had albinism until She’riq was born. Looking at the doctors’ facial expressions was just amazing. It was shocking to all of them.”
The twins are inseparable and share a great bond. Mom Sherria said: “The twins have a wonderful relationship, I love their relationship and it kind of makes me wish I had a twin growing up.”
“My daughter, She’riq, she’s very caring, very nurturing, kind of like me. And my son Te’riq is very outgoing, very funny like his dad.”
