What I liked

I loved her playfulness and bravery and the honesty with which she shared her story. I’m so happy to hear more takes on the issues of body shaming and self esteem tied to the images our media and culture perpetuate. Thank you Jannica for turning the mirror on ourselves as we grapple with how we are defining our values. Love this conversation!

What I didn't like

So artfully executed.

My overall impression

Jannica struck chords so deeply embedded in my psyche and so resonant in our society there was pretty much an audible soundtrack of uh-huhs and mmm-huhs going on the whole time. Even though this was her very personal and not so common experience with the condition of Alopecia, we all related to so much of what she went through on her journey to self acceptance and love.
