I was a transfer student at Clark Atlanta University and saw a variety of beauty black women who were natural - a drastic contrast to the perm and weaves that I grew up around in Miami. I was so young and had yet to develop my style as a young lady. Prior to this experience, I hadn't seen a style (hair, clothing, etc) on a woman that I wanted to emulate. The natural community in Atlanta was so beautiful, confident, ethnic....and I wanted to be apart of that. I went natural hoping to discover my own style and I did. When I went natural, I felt as if the door had been opened for my journey into womanhood.
