Why are you Bald?
I am bald due to alopecia areata.
How has being BALD made an impact on your life?
Being bald has been so empowering! Shaving what was left of my hair freed me from the bondage of trying to hide the bald spots. Secretly, I was ashamed of losing my hair, but being bald has made me bolder and more confident. It has made me realize that I have nothing to be ashamed of, and that I can help the next person experiencing hair loss because I'm willing to be open about it.
What words of encouragement would you share with someone who isn't confident with their Bald head?
Be who you are and let your light SHINE!!!! You have so much to offer to the world, family, friends, and yourself to hide in the shadows. It's okay to have a sensitive moment or day, and when you do, acknowledge those feelings, deal with it, then SHAKE IT OFF! Surround yourself with people who love you and celebrate you, and begin to live your BEST LIFE EVER!
