“I think many people, especially from other cultures, just don't understand the role hair plays in Black women's lives. I can now transform the energy surrounding my hair into something way more productive."
"I love my hair because it's versatile and empowering, and it makes a statement. There is no better accessory than my fro. Everyone knows I'm obsessed with Diana Ross. I often use her Afros as examples. But I have to admit, I've never quite seen one like my mom's in photos from back in the day. I've played with many silhouettes and textures. I've styled it in a triangle, added pieces for length, and compacted it for a tight square crop. I don't believe that there's such a thing as complete originality. All you can do is take the power of something so legendary and try to put your own stank on it."
"I grew up in a family that works hard. But when you have children, your priorities shift. So anything that's going to make me sweat? I'm not doing it anymore. I'm doing projects that sound like fun, things I'm passionate about. I have to learn how to say no a lot. Life is too short for anything else."
"Me and my father have a really relaxed kind of friendship. We're always joking with each other, and everybody is always like, 'Why is she so disre-spectful?' But I do respect him and I love him so much; we just kid around a lot."
