I grew up in Danemark being raised by my Danish mother, in a country where there isn’t a lot of people with tight curls or afros. So being part Jamaican I didn’t really feel represented. I looked at the white girls in school. And couldn’t think of anything I wanted more than to have straight hair like them. As I grew older I started to see people like me in music videos and later through social media like facebook, tumblr and instagram. I got friends with beautiful curls, and found out my hair was also beautiful like theirs. I started loving my curls in my teens, and I’m very proud to be natural.
