"There are many things that I don't like about my appearance, but without question, I do appreciate my hair. It is unique. When I was in middle school, I hated my hair: extremely curly and so different from the other girls'. Back in high school, I got tired of straightening my hair just to look like the majority of the people around me. I decided to cut and start embracing my hair the way it has always been: curly, puffy and voluptuous.
I don't regret my decision. Now more than ever I can proudly show to the world my hair as a symbol of personal self-love, self-esteem, and courage".
