What made you follow The Bald Movement? To be inspired by beautiful women and to inspire beautiful women.
Why are you BALD? This photo was taken last year after I participated in a St. Baldricks event to help children with cancer.
When did you realize that Hair didn't determine your beauty? I realized a long time ago society has unrealistic expectations on beauty especially when it comes to women. One of the main things was hair. Men are allowed to have long or short hair, even bald, while anything past the shoulders and shorter is frowned upon on women. There are labels that are instantly put on women with short hair and bald and produces such a negativity. Knowing some people who went through cancer or friends who had a loved one go through cancer, I finally had enough of society's standard on hair beauty. I wanted to show that beauty truly comes from the inside, not whether you have anything on your head and I wanted to inspire and encourage women and children to keep their head up high no matter the circumstances. Whether you are bald by cancer, alopecia, other diseases, or by choice.
What words of encouragement would you share with someone who isn't confident with themselves as you are? You are beautiful! You are gorgeous from the inside out! It doesn't matter if you have hair or not, whether you wear makeup or none, have little to no boobs or giant boobs, no matter how you dress, or what you do. Beauty comes from within even if you can't see it yet. Keep your head up high. Your beauty will shine through!
Tell us a bit about your decision to cut your hair or why you went bald? I have Alopecia an Autoimmune hair loss disease. June before my freshman year of high school my hair started falling out and by August I was bald. Two and a half months was all it took. To change almost everything and everyone in my life.
Do you feel you've changed for the better since you went bald? Yes, I feel stronger and more accepting of myself and others. I have a much more open mind as does my family and friends. My confidence is better then ever.
What words of encouragement would you share with someone who isn't confident with themselves as you are? Don't be ashamed of what fate has made you. Life's a bitch if it were easy we'd call it a slut. What others think you doesn't matter all that matters is what you think of yourself.
Finish this sentence: (My) Bald is not by choice. But being open with who I am and what I look like is a choice I've made I don't cover up my baldness, I don't hide it and I never will because life is to beautiful to hide in the shadows. Being bald does not define who I am. Hair is an accessory fate decided I didn't need and I'm much more accepting if it now. #BeYou
