Student's positive body image message

Young Reporter Kacey shares her journey of living with alopecia since the age of six.

Our Young Reporter reflects on her experiences with alopecia – how she felt when her hair started falling out, what it was like to lose her hair completely at the age of 10, and why she now feels thankful to have the condition.

Kacey also shares some of the reactions she has received over the years, from a stranger praying for her in a shop to one of her classmates mistaking her wig for a cat.
