What empowers me is trying to be myself at the end of the day and coming to terms with the fact that not everyone is going to like you and not everyone is going to be okay with what you do, but I think if you do stay true to yourself you’ll find a path that works for you and that makes you happy. That’s the most important thing.
My Hair Story
I think going natural was a big step. It was about a year ago. It came really naturally but it took a long time to get there. I relaxed my hair for a long time. Had a weave fro a little bit, then I went to braids. Eventually I was just kind of like, ‘okay I’m just going to let it happen.’ It wasn’t a struggle to do it, but it took a while to get to a place where I was okay doing it.
What makes you feel most beautiful?
I have days that I wear makeup and I have days when I don’t. The days when I don’t is when I feel okay with not wearing it, so I don’t know if it’s anything specific, but just kind of being in tune with how you feel about yourself and how you feel specifically that day.
