Here is a snippet of my hair story on un-ruly.com. Check out the full story on - http://un-ruly.com/hair-story-malliha-ahmad/#.Uu-TQv2qzLQ
"I’m originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  My mother is Black and my father, Pakistani.
Milwaukee is a very conservative and reserved place.  It’s very cookie cutter, meaning going out with my hair wild and in an afro was looked at as extremely different and I’d get a lot of stares and glares from people just wondering “why is her hair like that?” or “why isn’t it tamed? It looks wild.”  You can get a complex living in a place that’s not as diverse and is a bit more segregated because people aren’t as welcoming when it comes to things that are different from what they typically see.”
