Do you think there are expectations of being a Black female?
"Of course. There are expectations associated with every member of society, as a woman of color I try to defy the negative and educate the ignorant."
If someone asks if they can touch your hair, does it bother or flatter you?
"It depends on who is asking and the context of the situation. I must admit though, I am rarely (if ever) asked this question and I'm usually the one inviting people to touch my hair. I'm an 'open dialogue' advocate."
