“As a black student growing up through these opportunities, I had to accept that white supremacy had distorted my perspective,” Shiey said. I realized that over time, many of our strong and virtuous pillars had been torn down, and the only thing to look at was a Eurocentric standard.”
Through her research and research into African spirituality, Shei has made breakthroughs in prevalent white beauty standards.
“My hair was a real conduit for me to find my connection,” Shie said. I was able to see how much freedom I gained.It completely changed my view of how the world and how it really fits in.”
