I was 17 years old when my hair started falling out. At the start of April 2011, three weeks before my 18th birthday I started noticing bald patches on my scalp. Fast forward to August 2011 and my hair had completely fallen out.

I went to University with my first wig...I had been wearing it for a month so was still adjusting. Although I was confident at first, my confidence began to slip during the next two years and culminated into a little 'blip' as we called it. My confidence in myself and my looks were at rock bottom when I started doing a project with Alopecia UK which enabled me to build myself back up again.

This Calender Girls Pretty Bald project really enabled me to embrace who I am and my alopecia as part of that. Beauty comes in many forms and being bald...well, it's Pretty Beautiful too.
