This little girl reminds us that ‘what makes you different is what makes you unique’ and beautiful.
For many people, self-confidence is wrapped up in their hair, and it’s chilling to imagine a life with none.
But this cute girl, Gianessa Wride, who has alopecia, doesn’t let it stop her from showing the world what she’s made of.
When Crazy Hair Day at their school rolled around, Gianessa and her mom, Daniella, were understandably worried of how the day will turn out.
After all, how do you do crazy hair when you have none? But, determined to get involved regardless, the little girl didn’t let her lack of hair stop her from rocking the most amazing look for the themed-day.
With the help of her creative mom, Gianessa scalp was transformed into a beautiful piece of art that left everyone envious of her dazzling look.
Her mom, Daniella Wride, noticed her hair falling out while she was brushing her hair one morning and her daughter was diagnosed with Alopecia.
Alopecia is a medical condition that causes someone’s hair to fall out in large clumps. For Gianessa, doctors believed it was caused by the immense stress of her grandma passing.
While her mom Daniella was brushing her little girl’s hair one morning, she noticed her hair falling out. The mother quickly booked an appointment with a dermatologist, but within three weeks, Gianessa had completely lost her hair.
But, Gianessa, didn’t like wearing scarves or wigs. She’s proud of her bald head.
Gianessa’s mom, Daniella, got worried that her daughter would begin to feel bad about herself.
The mother explained:
“It was upsetting to her, and it was hard for me as well, but not because of what she looks like. I was more upset thinking that somebody might bully my daughter and I didn’t want her to ever feel less beautiful than she is.”
But the little girl has learned to love being bald, as she can do things to her head that other kids can’t. So, when “Crazy Hair Day” arrived, Daniella had the creative idea to adorn her daughter’s bald head in jewels and stickers to celebrate her baldness.
Surprisingly, she ended up winning “Crazy Hair Day,” and she totally deserved it! The jewels look awesome.
Though she was afraid that her friends would think she looked stupid, it turned out that they all completely loved it. They thought the design was incredibly cool and were all envious of her cute stickers—everyone wanted to look just like her!
The little girl had the best thing to say about her situation.
“I’m thinking now it might be fun to decorate my head with some sparkly butterflies and flowers.”
