Two years ago today.... I had just graduated high school and cut off all of my hair. I believe that on July 5th 2009 I was getting ready for my freshman orientation and I was mad excited! At the same time, I was afraid because there was no way for me to know how my hair was received. I don't think people treated me any differently. The black kids I saw were so happy to see someone like them, they didn't even notice my hair and sometimes they even complemented it. White people either complement or dont comment at all. No stares... I made friends quickly at school and even though I was nervous and awkward, my hair didn’t necessarily add to or cause that.
