“I want to reassure people that this hair is as beautiful as any other hair, and I really walked into it because I want it to stop not being normal. When I have my hair, I want people to stop asking me ‘why do you choose to have your hair’, because it’s my hair – it's normal. I wish we could come to a place where it’s just ‘she has hair and it’s her hair’.”
