😭 Sad News 😭

Hey Queens! 👋🏽

I come to you with very sad news. I lost my dad on Tuesday, May 17, 2016. I heard this news while I was at the hospital doing my practicum for school. It has taken such a tool on my body, I am just finding a little strength to write this. My dad & I were two peas in a pod, the two munchkins, anywhere you see him, you see me, I was his personal secretary, his manager – a great bond we both had that was so inseparable. Sigh. 🙁

Reminiscing Take It Back.jpg

I can still remember the day I made up my mind that I wanted to start caring for my hair – I was in my final year of high school. Lets take it back to what sparked this caring attitude towards this hair of mine. My hair was at its plateau – my dad had told me to start transitioning my hair because at the salon they were cutting too much of my hair but transitioning wasn’t what I wanted to do. I wanted to keep my hair permed.

Introduce Yourself 

Hi Queens, I am your 20 year old blogger, Monique from Jamaica. I am a nursing student. I love to sing, dance, watch YouTube videos and encourage others.

Why did you go natural?

I went natural because my dad was not digging the permed hair on me. He thought my thick head of hair had gotten too thin and too short. He suggested I return to my natural state. I am happy he told me to do so.

Hello Queens, I am Monique Spence, 20 years of age. I live in the beautiful island of Jamaica. I currently attend the University of Technology, Jamaica where I am pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Nursing.
