A British family of six siblings entered the Guinness Book of Records in the category of albino relatives.

Residents of Coventry named Nasim Akhtar, Ghulam Ali, Haider Ali, Mukadas Bibi, Musarat Begum and Mohammed Rafi were born with a genetic disease, due to which they lack the pigment that gives color to their skin, hair and iris, reports UPI.

Parents of siblings also suffer from albinism. One of the sisters, Nasim Akhtar, decided to apply for the Guinness Book of World Records to celebrate the family reunion after several months of separation during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Over time, I began to like my condition because it makes me unique. I am Asian by origin, but white, it gives me a unique perspective on life, it gives me a very unbiased opinion about society and humanity,” she said in a comment to representatives of the Book of Records.

“I like who I am and who I have become,” she added.
