My book launch was amazing!

To celebrate the journey (joys and challenges) we celebrated of the release of I Am More Than My Hair, on Sunday September 9th, at the Hyattsville Busboys and Poets.

Rather than the typical author talk, I decided to set the tone for a panel discussion. I gave a brief background on how I came up with the idea for I Am More Than My Hair. Several participants (Janice, Martina, Nicole, Doretha, Jameelah, Shae and Holly) introduced themselves and spoke about their #HAIRstory. Dermatologist Dr. Sharleen St. Surin-Lord clarified the meaning of alopecia and the importance of identifying the root cause.

Jeff Woytovich, Founder of Children’s Alopecia Project (CAP), was gracious enough to travel here (MD) from Pennsylvania and share his organization’s mission and available programs for children.

I honestly couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the release of I Am More Than My Hair . It was so much bigger than a book release. It was a gathering in celebration of the beauty and diversity of girls and women. See The Umbrella Syndicate’s photos on Facebook.

Blessings for 2015!

I Must Confess… 2014 Was Not An Easy Year.
If there is one thing I know for sure, it is that 2014 was not an easy year for many of us. Personally, I believe that keeping disappointment to ourselves does not bring forth healing change. Being honest does. Honesty opens connections.

Either way, I leave 2014 behind and look forward to positive change in 2015. I wholeheartedly see abundant opportunities and I’ve done my best to put things in order that has created personal growth. In that, I wish you many blessings and changes for the better in 2015 and beyond..

Peace & Blessings,

Alyscia Cunningham
