Meet our latest and youngest blogger is Kendra Nicole. She shares with us her experience of moving from New Jersey to San Juan Puerto Rico. A whole experience for a kid, especially a Black girl who doesn’t have long straight or weavy hair but wears her hair and Natural.
I am 7 years old, and I am from New Jersey.
Last year me, and my mom moved to San Juan Puerto Rico. I do love it here, but it is a lot different from New Jersey. I don’t see too many people that look like me. Especially, not with thick, kinky, beautiful short hair, like I have.
It was hard for me to get use to the comments, questions and stares. But, my mom helped me understand that this is the way God made me, and if someone has a problem with that, then they should take it up with God!
It took a long time for me to love me just the way that I am. Over the next few months I will share my story with you. I hope someone, somewhere learns not to be mean to other kids, or to love themselves a little bit more. See you on the blogs, and I am excited to meet you.
