About Me:
Hello my Alopecian Family!

My name is Sandra Dubose-Gibson. I was born and raised in the Bronx, New York but as of 2007, I reside in Apex, North Carolina. I developed Alopecia Areata when I was 25 years old which has since developed into Alopecia Universalis. In 2009, I was diagnosed with Cicatricial Alopecia as well. As you know, the journey to regain self love and self acceptance due to Alopecia is different for everyone, so we must be gentle with ourselves. Not until 2008 was I ready to get over the pain and turn it into a point of power to go out without my wig and liberate my life. Today, I am an advocate for Alopecia and Autoimmune Disease Awareness. Helping others is my way of fighting back. I am a liberation life coach dedicated to helping people like us break free from low self-esteem and create the life we deserve in spite of our challenges.

On Saturday, March 26, 2011, I competed in a local beauty pageant and made history when I was crowned 2011 Mrs. Black North Carolina, the 1st Bald Beauty Queen of the state. I wanted to show the world that bald women are beautiful too and deserving of a crown.

I am a national inspirational speaker and singer/songwriter. I am glad to be a part of this community where we can all GROW through this experience together.

Stay connected and Stay beautiful, inside and out.

"Loss of hair is 'blessing' for Raleigh woman"
Hair loss can be a traumatic experience that challenges self-esteem, but a Raleigh woman turned the loss of her hair into inspiration for creativity........

That is an honest question and I really would like to hear the answers from everyone. Ponder it for a moment and let me know what you come up with. I have had Alopecia for 10 years, the last 6 of which have been with Alopecia Universalis. In 2008, I finally got to a place where I feel like I have accepted my ultra petite bald head and this condition. I can look in the mirror again and feel connected to the woman staring back at me. At one point, I disconnected from her and deemed her a… Continue

Thanks, Sandra! Thanks for accepting! Right now I feel like a poser because I'm wearing wigs. I guess I have to get up the courage to go out without one. The labor to shave my head was really trying and took me a long time to do it. One day, I'll be able to do it. I just wear a hat or hood in the house because my head is always cold! Thank you for the encouraging words. I appreciate them! I hope one day I'll be able to rock as hard as you do! Be blessed!
