“OUR HAIR IS PART OF OUR IDENTITY” WOMENS MONTH

I have met some amazing young women who are all passionate about media and  sharing great stories and one of them is a lady called Jeba Ali who recently did the “Big Chop”. Jeba donated all 17 inches of her hair to the Little Princess Charity which makes wigs for children experiencing hair loss.

“My hair is very personal to me and it’s part of my identity,”
