On October 12, 2011 I was sitting in Veronica’s shop thinking about the decision I had made to start locking my hair. I wanted something different from my natural afro and before that something other than the bald helmet that I wore for many years. I wanted dreadlocks. I wanted something that was unique to my personality, something lively and bold. Veronica was my portal into the world. Every since then I embraced my dreadlocks and the lifestyle. I have loved them everyday. Wearing dreadlocks has made me more conscious of my differences from those without them. It has heightened my awareness what perception means. Also being in the dreadlock community has allowed me the perfect opportunity to look within myself and understand me better. It has been a journey of self awareness thus far. I am excited to see what other attributes arise from the strands of my locks.
Happy 2 year Anniversary!
