Lara Kitchen es una modelo australiana que decidió mostrar su imagen sin uno de los accesorios más importantes en su carrera.
La joven modelo perdió todo su cabello cuando tenía 14 años de edad debido a la alopecia, enfermedad que causa la caída de todo el cabello y que faceta indistintamente a hombres y mujeres.

La valentía de Lara fue aplaudida por sus seguidores de Instagram, en donde publicó un video en el que aparece con su cabeza desnuda y una sonrisa en la cara que muestra al mundo que aprendió a convivir con su condición.
“Soy valiente y fuerte y sí, el cabello es muy importante físicamente pero mis amigos y mi familia me quieren por como soy y no me tengo por qué avergonzar de ello”, dijo la modelo.
Doing this is was the scariest thing I have ever done in my entire life and something I don't speak about to anyone! So a little story to get this all started When I was 14 I started to loose my hair in clumps and as you can imagine being a 14 year old girl starting high school with new people, you want to make a good impression but for me I became and felt like I was the girl that "wore a wig" or as nasty rumors went around such as "I had cancer" and these words were spread not just through my own school but through other school and already suffering anxiety made things very tough. My parents had no Idea what was going on, why was I loosing my hair? We saw doctor after doctor and some said stress and then one of perths top dermatologists told us alopecia, I remember sitting there and just crying in the doctors office and taking my wig off as he looked at my head and began to tell me and my mum that the follicle off the hair was still there but the chances of it growing back were slim but determined to get my hair back we started treatments (which were not cheap, and involved very strong steroids going onto my head) eventually after trying and trying I gave up and had to accept that nothing was working so for the mean time stick to wigs And I can tell you now wigs 6-7 years ago were not what they are today! And one day a gorgeous soul who I will forever be great full too for this told me about franchesca this young lady that was making wigs/ weaves. So my mum and i went and visited franchesca and my god my life changed instantly, Franchesca made long human hair wigs, which was so exciting for me, I could straighten my hair!! I could have a long pony tail! My "hair" looked more real. And from then on kept hush about my hair. Over the past years me and franchesca have spoken about doing something like this video and a few months ago, I agreed! Because I have nothing to be ashamed off in my words "I'm bold (literally) and strong" and yes hair is a major physical aspect to my appearance but my friends and family love me for me, my personality the person and was raised to be, I shouldn't have anything to feel ashamed off! *continue reading in the comments section
