I also never felt like I was at a disadvantage. You see, I grew up in the Caribbean and while for some Caribbean people Christmas is a “huge deal” for others…

I then decided to do my second big chop just before starting University. In my final year of University, I decided to embark on a Loc Journey. I loved my locs, but a major life event occurred when I turned 23 so I decided to start fresh and I did…
