I always tell my daughter to embrace her own uniqueness, including her own natural hair. That's not always so easy to do. In a world where everyone wants to look the same, it's easy to always want what we don't have. These pictures were taken in the month of June, right in the middle of 9th grade final craziness, right after a "motivational" talk with her trying to calm her down (she was stressing about finals). The best part of this was, aside from the fact that she actually let me take pictures of her, was that she was loving her hair-which is not always the case. Here is to "dancing to your own beat and embracing your own uniqueness"; cheers!
