I would tell my 10-year-old self, ‘just be you. Don’t try to be like everyone else because that’s what everyone else is trying to do. When you are yourself you’re going to be the happiest.’
I’m on a natural hair journey. This is a weave but I do my natural hair every weekend. There was nothing exciting about straight hair. I just like my own puffy hair. I look back at pictures and I want it back.
I want to have my own business–a clothing store. I want to go to the Fashion Institute of Technology.
