Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley has gone public about a very personal issue…she has alopecia. In case  you don’t know, alopecia is partial or complete loss of hair. She first became aware of her hair loss last fall while getting her hair retwisted. She reveals that the night she lost her final piece of hair was a critical moment. It was the night before Trump’s impeachment vote in the House, and it was the anniversary of her mother’s death. She says she’s still in the process of making peace with alopecia, and she’s making progress every day.

Ayanna Pressley continues to amaze and impress and inspire me with the way she continues to stand on the front lines and fight. This will make such a huge difference to so many people. Check out the video as she shares more of her hair story.
