I was diagnosed with alopecia in March 2017 and by December, I had lost all of my hair. Initially it was very difficult, particularly because when I found out, it was two days before I went on a week school residential.
In the beginning I wore a wig, but it was itchy and uncomfortable. It actually became much easier when my hair was all gone. I had a photoshoot which helped my confidence and then a few months later, I was signed up to a modelling agency who champion people with differences and disabilities. Since then, I have had a few jobs, including London Fashion Week. I am not defined by alopecia; there’s a lot more to me. I am inspired by anyone who achieves their goal and I hope to inspire others to achieve theirs.
