“Bad Hair Does Not Exist!/”Pelo Malo No Existe!” – is a book
with an anti-bullying message that reinforces respect for individualism.
Hispanic and Black children are exposed to the divisive and bullying term, “bad
hair,” within their own communities.
The term “bad hair” or “pelo malo” is used to describe hair that is usually of curlier texture or of a thick and coarse
density. This is irresponsible and often contributes to a child’s low self –
esteem, dividing both communities and families. The book’s purpose is to
empower all children by giving them alternate terms to describe their hair,
and teaching them the importance of respecting one another’s differences.

- My writing roots I still don't know that writing is my passion. All I know is that I was always able to express myself more effectively through it. My dad would always tell me never to doubt the power of the mighty pen. I think overall my passion has always been to stand on the side of justice especially for girls of all ages. I love doing the right thing in the spirit of love for the greater good. To God Be The Glory!
- My style There is something magical about women solidarity or how I like to say it 'SoldiHerity.” “My platform is to inspire others especially girls to understand and embrace their own 'dynamic unique. We are a multicultural community and at the end of the day a salad bowl is by far more attractive than a melting pot” stated Sulma Arzu-Brown.
