I am so excited to share some amazing news. I stepped out of my comfort zone and did my first Instagram Live on the topic of "Self-Acceptance" with the beautiful Valerie Fuentes, a Hair-loss Coach and creator of the Unapologetic Badass Academy, committed to empowering women facing hair loss. I had the opportunity to be a part of the 12 Days of Alopecia Support campaign, whereby Valerie chats with 12 amazing women who discuss their alopecia experiences. This campaign runs from December 12-24, 2020 and there is a fantastic giveaway at the end that includes a $400 gift card from Silk or Lace, hair accessories, a women's hair loss coaching pack, and 4 coaching calls including one from me about acceptance and self love.
To be honest, I never would have thought in a million years I would be on a live stream and bald headed speaking so openly about my journey. I've realized that I am a lot stronger than I give myself credit for. It's showed me that I am not alone contrary to me thinking that I was the only person in Toronto with no hair (silly I know). I've discovered an incredible community of support for people just like me and have even built friendships because of it. When I watched the playback of this interview there was another weight lifted off my shoulders and replaced with grace. This grace has allowed me to take another bold step towards self-acceptance and if you ask me, I think that's pretty darn cool.
P.s, we were also celebrating the holidays so take a moment to appreciate my ugly Christmas sweater at the end of the clip lol.
