HORU February 22, 2016


(2/2) "The day of my shave was last week on Valentine's Day, the day of love. I really didn't have any nerves going into it. I was so ready to do it, and I was surrounded by family and friends. It was a very positive, loving atmosphere, and it's been that way ever since. I feel like I've always been a confident person, but after the shave I absolutely realize my self-worth and just how awesome and beautiful people can be without hair. It's always been positive vibes. What I've learned though is that I'm pretty determined and that I'm gonna rock this look so that people who stare or who don't quite understand can see that bald is beautiful, and that making a difference and spreading awareness can hopefully move people to do the same."
