While attending the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff , I would see this beautiful women walking around Bald and All and I used to say to myself, I'm not sure why she's bald but that's one brave woman. At that time I was still trying to figure out my purpose for life and even battling with my image. Though I'm not too sure if anyone may have made fun or picked on her because of her Baldness this gorgeous Bald Beauty always Embraced it. Ive never seen his young lady wear wigs, she has always embraced who she was, and when she decided to reach out and share her story it truly made my heart sing, which is also one of her talents.
Thank you so much Janitha for reaching out and supporting by sharing your story. Because of the beautiful woman I witnessed back then till now, I name you Baldie of the Month of May, Congratulations.
What made you follow The Bald Movement? I actually have followed the Bald Movement for a while and I used to be classmates with the founder
Why are you BALD? At the age of 4 I began losing my hair from a condition called Alopecia Areata. Since then after trying wigs and realized it made me ashamed of who I was on top of the wigs itching I made the choice to just be bald and haven't went back since!
When did you realize that Hair didn't determine your beauty? When I began viewing myself with the eyes God views me with. It says in his word I am fearfully and wonderfully made. And his definition of what defines beauty isn't based on the physical but he is looking towards our hearts and our spirits. His opinion is the only one that matters.
What words of encouragement would you share with someone who isn't confident with themselves as you are? Accept that God makes no mistakes! Your worth and value isn't determined by the opinion of others or your own opinion of yourself. Know who you are and whose you are. And once you are able to stand firm on those positive truths and not those negative lies, you will become fearless!
