The Pros & Cons Of A Black Teenage Girl

The Pros & Cons Of A Black Teenage Girl

Being a teenage blackgirl with wild hair is highly not recommended. You go through the terms of changing your hair every week or two weeks if you are lucky. We have all different types of grades of hair, some people’s hair gets very short when water gets put on it. One day while I was at work it was very hot inside of the store. My hair had edge control on it so it could have stayed in place but because it was so hot inside the store the edge control started sweating off making my hair back fuzzy.

Being a teenage black female, matter fact just being a black female in general is hard no matter what the person’s age is. We go through different things from other kids because maybe some of us are too light to be black or maybe some of us are too dark for the other kids. I remember going to elementary school wanting to go home because if I came to school with my hair wild the other kids had very rude/mean comments about it. I was just a kid that wanted to be treated like everyone else. I just felt like it wasn’t my fault that my hair wasn’t like the other kids. They could put water on their hair and it would lay down but I couldn’t do that. All my hair would shrink up so bad. 

As I got older I started getting my hair done in braids and sew ins because I didn’t like wearing my real hair because of what always happened when I was younger. That stays with people for the rest of their life. We do not want our hair messy looking, that’s just how we were made. Teachers would just look over the comments the kids use to say to me, I went home everyday and told my mother. My mother always just told me its okay you’re just different and beautiful. 

Being a black female is the most proudest thing to me. We all might not have the same skin color or hair type but we all know facts and are well educated. Just because a person’s skin color is darker does not mean they are not educated. Most people try to fit in because they want to be accepted, not me though I love being me and I love my skin color and I love my hair texture/type. NOBODY can ever take that away from me that is how I was made. That is how I will live my life the proudest most educated black female. All females are queens no matter their skin color I just wish everyone thought like that. Nobody deserves to get bullied because of how they were made. If everyone would just think positive about each other the world would be much better everyone would live better, love better, support better. Everyone would just be whole like one big family.
