LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 11.16 135 Ashanti Scott 15, sophomore "I feel like I'm expressing myself, and I'm embracing my hair by not wearing it straight every day. I'm doing what I want with my hair and what other people who look like me, who are black like me, are doing with their hair." Jaela Story 15, sophomore "I usually have my hair braided because of sports. Natural hair takes a lot to do and it's hard to take care of. The way we wear our hair is a way to express ourselves. We already look alike: We wear the same uniforms, the same colors, the same pants, the same shirts. The only thing different is our shoes and our hair. I don't think anybody wants to look like somebody else. Everybody wants to look like their own person."
