TBM: How did you become a baldie? Kananelo: I was diagnosed with alopecia when I was 6
TBM: How has life been as a baldie? Kananelo: The most terrific experience one could ever have. There are days when I'd just cry myself to sleep asking if I'm a woman enough and questioning my beauty. I have been betrayed by many I called my friends and hurt my total strangers. At a tender age I learned that the world isn't so nice and not everyone is who they claim to be. I remember one day on my bestie's birthday se said to me she didn't want me in her pictures because I looked so ugly, I looked like a guy. I was just 6 at that time. I had no idea what I had done to deserve such pain. It really hurt because my parents were also affected. Growing up, I could see it in their eyes that they are hurt about the situation I am in and there was not much they could do. I can bear seeing them in pain due to seeing me in pain, so sometimes I just keep my feelings and pain to myself to just let everybody be happy and normal but myself. It isn't good I know but I do have people I talk to other than family. I still have alopecia till this day, I still get laughed at for being bald and its okay, I am born of Christ Jesus and He definitely knows why I am facing this, that's why I have stopped questioning Gods will. I am a very much refined person and truly speaking, I believe that one day I will have my own hair on my head again. I don't wear wigs or headwraps to hide myself, it is my identity and I want everyone to see it because it has made me the young phenomenal woman I am today. Indeed, dynamites come in small packaging. TBM: How long did it take you to expose your baldness in public? Kananelo: I have never hidden it so I've been bald in public all my life
TBM: What's your head care regimen? Kananelo: I stopped my treatment
TBM: What are your favorite hobbies? Kananelo: Singing, writing, reading, dancing.
TBM: What one word best describes your baldness and why? Kananelo: POWER. That's exactly where I got to find my inner strength and my baldness. I learned to be a fighter in most situations I go through all thanks to the criticisms I got because of my baldness
TBM: What words of encouragement would you share with someone who isn't as confident about their baldness as you? Kananelo: Your hair is like icing on a cupcake. What Matters isn't really the icing, it's the muffin. It is used to just decorate,it's an accessory. Everyone has scars/flaws, jut because your's are visible doesn't make you less of a human. It makes you much more stronger because you'll learn to be bolder
