A beautiful role model

malalaThis year, the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to seventeen-year-old Malala Yousafzai. For those who don’t know, Malala became a blogger for the BBC at the tender age of eleven. On her blog, she documented the growing influence of the Taliban, who wanted to “ban girls’ education and were blowing up schools and closing others down in her home of Swat, in northern Pakistan.” Malala was targeted by the Taliban, who boarded her school bus one day and shot her in the head.  Malala survived, and now resides in England where she is still advocating for girls’ education.

Want to learn more? Check out the Malala Fund, which supports girls’ education around the world.

Malala’s resilience and determination is absolutely beautiful! She is exactly the kind of person I want my students and future children to look up to.

Hair Growth Relief

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, as a woman my biggest fear is losing my hair! I want to cry everyday when I brush my hair because of all the hair I lose. I think to myself, how do I still have hair? I know I’m not the only one who has this fear, and women’s hair loss is something that needs to be addressed, and fast, before it’s too late.
