In November 2009, you were one of my firsts. When I accidentally found your YouTube videos, it was [natural hair] love at first sight. You empowered me by not only teaching me how to properly care for my natural hair, but also by teaching me how to incorporate it into my life. You taught me the importance of being happy, being in love, and having a good work ethic. You also taught me how to build an empire and be a woman of style and grace.
You are the epitome of today’s black woman, “strong” opinions and all. Thank you for helping me become the natural woman I am today.
Your Favorite First,
