“I decided to take time off before pursuing my undergraduate education. At the time, going natural and cutting my hair was me saying ‘no, I’m taking my power back’ because I was always looking for answers outside of myself. Loc’ing my hair has helped be more patient. I can visually see how strong and healthy my hair is as it grows and I mature.
I’m excited to attend Howard University this fall. Three women professors who I previously worked with in the nonprofit sector encouraged me to apply.”
