Growing up in a highly competitive environment, Carmen always felt less accepted than her far more athletic and outgoing siblings. She withdrew into her own world, pursuing a love of artistic endeavors. But, Carmen also found comfort in twisting and pulling her own hair out. She would hide this with her trademark hats and bright scarves.
Nearing high school graduation, Carmen began to be recognized for her own achievements and offered scholarships to continue her art studies. As her feelings of self-worth began to grow, it was time to address the "hair issue". That's when Carmen discovered Thursday's. This young woman is now immersed in school, surrounded by new friends, and enjoying a head of hair that she loves to run her fingers through.
