Angie, 36 years old


People were always coming up to me and wanting to touch my hair. My mom kept my hair really long and severe with bangs. It was like a cape. I used to resent the comments because I felt like it covered up people's interest in who I really was. My ego was centered around my intelligence. For people to comment on my hair made me feel like they weren't taking me seriously.
