Before joining Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., I knew we’d be living apart. I knew we wouldn’t have a mansion with a wooden swinging bench on a well-kept lawn. I knew that if we wanted to meet, it wouldn’t be as simple as going downstairs to the tidy living room. I knew the stress we’d have to encounter by being forced to pick a place and time everyone was available to meet. But I never knew why I didn’t have these luxuries.
Talent, as defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary, is a special ability that allows someone to do something well.

It’s the shaky voice and hands. It’s the light sweat that forms on your forehead. It’s the butterflies and jitters or your quickened heartbeat. Nervousness has happened to everyone at one time or another, and for some it may even happen every time they’re in a certain situation. Sometimes, “acting natural” isn’t as easy as it sounds. Dr. Cindy Smith, senior lecturer of Public Oral Communication at IU, and Lauren Little, Media School career advisor, spoke to INside Magazine about how to “act natural” in different settings, and how they grew comfortable doing so.
Today, more black millennial women are choosing to wear their hair chemical-free. In other words, ‘going natural.’ Hair is a basic feature almost everyone has or has had in their lifetime. For many, it is a way of self-expression and identity. Hair for many generations has been aligned with Western beauty standards in appearance and upkeep. In Western society, the norm for women is straight, long and downward growing hair. To fit into this mold and to avoid discrimination, most black women in the past have chemically straightened their hair, installed extensions or weaves and styled their hair in many other fashions. In this new era black women are taking ownership of their hair. If they choose to wear extensions or their natural hair, it is through their doing and no one else’s. The beauty of black hair is diversity. From weaves to braids, the styles and techniques are endless. Even within natural hair there is diversity in hair texture and curl patterns. We at INSIDE reached out to 7 young women to tell their stories on why they wear their hair natural and their natural hair journeys.
