My name is Anita Kalu, and I am from Nigeria. I love the diversity of culture in my country. There are so many different languages, and a variety of foods and traditions that make us who we are. One of my favorite parts of my culture are the amazing traditional hairstyles worn by the women.
When I was seven years old, I saw an older girl making a lady’s hair for the first time. I became intrigued by this beautiful craft, and I decided to learn how to do it myself. When I first tried it, the hair wasn’t as neat as I remembered, but with practice I became better at creating beautiful Nigerian hairstyles. I am so happy to have this chance to share this part of my Nigerian culture with you!
