When I saw this picture I didn’t need to read a single word to know that 1. I am not alone and 2. I am indeed FREE to take up space as myself!
#RP @nerdybrownkid When I was in grade school, it seemed like everything about me was growing uncontrollably. My hair suddenly grew thick and curly, and I kept it in braids because I didn’t know what else to do. I was swimming with my cousins one summer and when we got out of the pool they all laughed at how big my hair was. Why did my hair look like that? Why didn’t it look Mexican? So I wanted to take that moment and reimagine it as one where I felt big and beautiful.
