Women With No Fingerprints Gets To Vote For The First Time. Her parents were told that she had approximately a year to live.
A female from the Western Cape, Sandra Horne, lived her whole life with no fingerprints. She has a scarce skin illness that made her unknown to the identity systems. According to the eNCA, the 38-year-old female was told that she had Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa when she was just 14 days old.
Her parents were told that she had approximately a year to live. However, Sandra Horne has went against the odds and showed the illness who’s boss. The disease, however, left her without any prints. This made it hard for to vote or do anything else that requires finger prints.
Sandra Horne says that her illness made her skin swell. Sandra Horne says, “I was sixteen years old when I applied for my green barcoded ID, they discovered that I do not have fingerprints.” The 38-year-old female says the swelling removed most of her skin’s upper part.
HIB Global, a tech organisation, uses top quality material. The tech uses light to see beneath the skin’s upper layer so that they can show Sandra Horne’s identification.
