I'm 15 years old. I've had Alopecia ever since I was 2. Luckily, I have an almost full head of hair right now. When I was 2 I only had patches(Areata) and my mom took me to the doctor to find out what was wrong with me. The docotor gave my mom a pamphlet, didn't describe anything and sent us out of the office. My mom started reading the pamphlet and immidiately stormed back into the docotor's office and yelled at him! Then in second grade I lost ALL of my hair!!! But once I got in 4th grade it started growing back and now I only have Areata. My mom is a state representative in Delaware and just recently passed a bill saying that insurance companies have to pay 500 dollars for full-scalp prothseses in Delaware. I play softball on my highschool team, played volleyball in the beginning of the school year, and I dance at a local studio. Actually, I quit dance at that studio and am now trying to get involved with another one. The dances I take are hiphop, jazz, and modern.
I love reading- anytime, anywhere. Some books I love are: House of Night(by P.C. and Kristen Cast), Mamimum Ride(James Patterson), Twilight(Stephanie Myer), Pride&Prejudice and Emma(Jane Austen), Wuthering Heights(Emily Bronte), Dracula(Bram Stoker), Romeo&Juliet and Othello(Shakespeare), Speak(Laurie Paulse Anderson), Evermore(Alyson Noel), and the Private serieas(Kate Brian).
Music&Bands are another hug part of my life. Here are some of my favorite artists(thought some are quite scary): Paramore, Evanescence, Flyleaf, Hey Monday, The Hush Sound, We The Kings, Jimmy Eat World, Avenged Sevenfold, Brokencyde, Atreyu, Framing Hanley, Panic! At The Disco, Slipknot, 3 Doors Down, Yellowcard, No Doubt, Taylor Swift, David Cook, and sooo many more!
