Ambassador Spotlight - Erica
Congratulations to Erica (pictured far left), our Wigs 4 Kids Ambassador of the Month! Erica is 15 years old and has alopecia, an auto-immune disorder causing hair loss. She has a passion for the cosmetology industry and will be attending a trade school to learn her craft. Erica enjoys participating in social activities at our
Wellness Center and inspires other young Ambassadors to feel beautiful!
1. Tell us about yourself! (school, hobbies, favorite activities, plans for Spring…)
“My name is Erica and I am a sophomore. I love playing guitar & ukulele, and I love to draw! I enjoy bike riding and playing soccer when the weather is warm. I don't have plans for Spring, yet I will be attending concerts in the next few months!"
2. What surprised you about Wigs 4 Kids or receiving a wig?
“How loyal the team is. Everyone is so kind and they truly care about how you feel - they treat you the way they would like to be treated. They have helped me raise my confidence and self-esteem. I can't thank them enough! The quality of the wigs is also very nice."
3. If you had to give “words of wisdom” or advice to younger kids, what would it be?
"Just be yourself. Don't worry about other's opinions - it's yours that counts! You are beautiful, cool and awesome - I want you to remember that. You are stronger than any bully and I believe in you! I would rather be myself than change my appearance or attitude simply because someone told me to. An original is worth more than a copy."
4. What is your favorite vacation spot?
"My favorite vacation spot would have to be Disney! I've never been there before, yet it's a giant amusement park - who doesn't love those?"
