First question I usually get when I answer that I am from Suriname is “Where is that?”. Most people guess Africa but Suriname is not on the African continent. It’s the only Dutch speaking country in South America, next to Guyana, in the middle of the Guyana’s, on top of Brazil.
This week I came home, well one place I consider home…Kansas. Here I was never natural and always boxed in…very oppressed in natural freedom. I never felt that moving outside of the box was valued. Only staying streamlined. I guess life was easier this way. Not disturbing the norm. Well I came back froed out! And felt great. Apparently, fighing oppression does not happen through conformity but through Resistance. I felt more free and less oppressed. Maybe its because my natural journey has taught me more about self worth and confidence than anything else.

So I have been doing a lot of research on products for 4b hair, big chops and do’s & don’ts. After doing all that, I decided not to wait until next week and I went to my barber today and took it all off.
I feel great!!! My dad watch me like I’m crazy (LOL)
Now I have to go get me some accessories and restock on makeup. Looking forward to my natural journey and a new me.
Will take some pics tomorrow and post them.
Happy to be Nappy!!!!
