Some years ago a reporter took my picture and said I was an Afghan girl. The magazine gave him money to go to Afghanistan and write an article but he wanted to keep the money so he wrote the article without visiting the country. The picture of me made the cover and many religious groups started looking for the girl to kill her because her hair wasn’t covered.
That’s an interesting little fact I think. I am Irish and Italian (I think) and my eyes used to be blue until a German scientist put rust dust on my irises. Sometimes they photograph blue, that’s why my eyes in the pictures above are sometimes bluish-brown, as they were on the magazine cover.
(too bad I don’t look the same anymore)
