As a self-taught product manager, I struggled a lot with Impostor Syndrome. I got opportunities I didn’t even dream about and I felt like a fraud. I didn’t think I was good enough and I let it affect my work and my self-esteem. While I dont consider myself perfect or above mistake, Writing down these remind me of how far I have come and how much work I still need to do.

I was tired of combing, tugging, pulling, styling and trying to be creative with my natural hair. Every style I tried was a fail and at some point, I just got tired of everything.  I was tired of wigs and braids. I was tired of failed styles and just touching my hair. Cutting my hair was not an option because I already look younger than my age and going bald makes one look wayyyyy younger. The baldie look isn’t also for me. Relaxing my hair was also unappealing because of how fine and thin my hair is. I am not against relaxed hair. I just don’t like the sleek look on me. HOW!! One day I googled where to loc…
