And a quote from the article:
“There are so many restrictions in the world, but your body is the one thing you have that you can do whatever you want with, and you can change that as much as you want.

Toa-Kwapong referenced how her racial identity, hair style and self-expression intersect when she declared, “I am clearly a black African woman, and I think my aesthetic definitely shifts a lot depending on my hair style. So right now I have braids, and that’s one kind of aesthetic, but when I have my natural hair out as an afro I feel like almost a different person.”
