Embrace Who You Are and Love You for You!
When I was growing up, there were never very many redheads around me (there weren’t even any in my family). When I got to junior high I was the only redheaded girl in school, which was predominantly hispanic. To say I was bullied would be an understatement. Not a day went by that I didn’t come home with a busted lip, black eye, clothes torn, etc., and all because I looked different. The situation was so bad my parents had no choice but to pull me out and home school me. I went through a long period of wanting to dye my hair to any color other than red, but my mom told me I wasn’t allowed to dye my hair until I was eighteen.
When I was seventeen I started dating the man who is now my husband. He loved me for being me, red hair and all. To this day I have never dyed my hair. We have been married for over fourteen years and have three wonderful children. My middle child is a redhead and I have been able to teach all of my children to love themselves as they are, by accepting who I am.
I love my red hair and I wouldn’t change it for anything!
Love yourself and love you for YOU.

She went through a ‘Lindsay Lohan Stage’ and tried to cover up her freckles with every type of method possible. Around the time that she went back to being a redhead, she
