Aerialist with alopecia to appear on America's Got Talent Tues. June 17

Hey Folks,

I auditioned for America's Got Talent this season with my aerial silks act. My audition was filmed and will air on NBC at 8pm on Tues. June 17. During my backstage interview I discuss my experience with Alopecia and the challenges I had to overcome in continuing my career as a performing artist. I even took my wig off while I was on camera!! I hope to be an inspiration to others in helping them overcome their fears, to look beyond their physical appearance and to live bravely while pursuing their passions in this life. I would love the support of as many viewers as possible. Please tell your friends and family to watch America's Got Talent on NBC at 8pm to cheer me on!

Thanks for letting us know. My daughter loves this show and will be thrilled to see someone with Alopecia perform. In the last few weeks someone with Alopecia has been on So You Think You Can Dance and American Ninja Warrior. I am so happy my daughter has been able to see people with her condition on television. Good luck!!!

I saw the woman on So You Think You Can Dance. It's wonderful to see more and more people with Alopecia pursuing their dreams. Our hair loss doesn't have to limit us...we can do anything we set our hearts and minds to!

So cool.  At first I thought you were the girl from So You Think You Can Dance.  But your another girl with alopecia areata on a different TV show.  Awesome that your helping to put us on the map!  Good Luck!!!

Thank you Renee! We Alopecians are making ourselves seen and heard. I'm so happy to help bring awareness to a condition I knew nothing about until it happened to me, and to encourage others to let nothing stand in their way of doing what they love.
