Six Years of Being Natural

As a woman who has been natural for about 6 years, I have not embraced my natural hair with any confidence until literally a month ago when I colored my hair.

How’s Life as a College Graduate?

I thought after graduating from college, I was going to be traveling the world, have this amazing feeling like I’ve accomplished something but honestly, I’m not motivated anymore and I don’t have a sense of determination for anything.
