When I was a young girl
I had visions of fame
They were wild and they were free
They were blessed with my name…
I L.O.V.E. that song!
Anyway, one of my visions included attending Spelman College and stomping across campus chanting “Oo-ooop!” with the Delta’s or “Skee wee!” with the AKA’s. None of that happened. I missed the undergrad pledge opportunity, but at the end of 2011, I kind of joined a sorority called the natural hair movement.
I imagine the sisterhood, empowerment and bonding is pretty similar to a sorority. Don’t burst my bubble! (insert side eye)
Last month, my friend Angela hosted about two handfuls of her curlfriends for an au naturale girls day. It included girl talk, bonding, motivation, hair makeovers, sharing tips, a product exchange, yummy healthy food and adult refreshments.
I thoroughly enjoyed the experience (minus sitting under the dryer) and gained a few new curlfriends. Good times!
