Accepting Your Looks
Many teenagers battle with there looks everyday to impress others around them, create there own style, and just to fit in. Girls straighten their hair, paint their nails, and wear tons of make up. Guys will wear their pants down low, grow goatees, and spike their hair. It's a challenge to be original, be yourself, and still have a style you are comfortable with. Toya Smith Marshall wrote an essay about how letting her hair do it's own thing made her a stonger more beautiful woman.
"After 18 years, Toya Smith Marshall stopped straightening her hair and let it revert to its natural kinkiness. Marshall believes that by no longer fighting her hair, she found the freedom to be herself and live by her own definition of beauty." NPR
