“Evolution of Farah” Photographer:
I was a member of the going-natural.com because I wanted to know other naturals, learn from their experiences, hair journeys and the tips and tricks that they could give me to help me with my own journey. Looking through the website I saw America’s Next Natural Model, and intrigued I clicked on the link and looked at all the model’s beautiful pictures showcasing the various challenges. Unfortunately I had missed the deadline twice, and I was extremely determined to get into the next round!
When it was finally time for America’s Next Natural Hair Model 2013, I wrote and rewrote my essay, even having it checked over before I submitted it. I crossed my fingers, and anxiously waited for the results.
When I received the email from going-natural.com stating I was in the competition, I admit I was cheesin’ it, and I reread the email multiple times just to make sure my eyes weren’t deceiving me. I forwarded the email to my mom and told her there was a surprise and to check it! After several days of feeling in heaven for being accepted into this competition, reality struck of the challenges I would face in this competition and that is where the “Evolution of Farah” began.
