Bald from Bullying

Aolani, a vibrant, biracial 8-year-old, dreamt of having long flowing hair like her grandmother. Upon returning to school with her new hair extensions, however, Aolani says she was bullied by her classmates, who not only called her names but also pulled on her hair, eventually damaging the stitching of the weave. Within two weeks, Aolani’s scalp had become so badly infected from her hair being pulled out that doctors warned her hair may never grow back.
