“Going natural and cutting my hair was me saying ‘no, I’m taking my power back’…”

“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.”
