Where are you from: My name is Safia and I come from FRENCH GUIANA. If I can say a few words about F.G, it's that when you arrive there you are amazed by its lush Amazonian rainforest that gives the extraordinary view of a green ocean from the plane. The specifity of F.G is certainly the ethnical and linguistic diversity. We have Amerindians, Haitians, Dominicans, Brasilians, Indians, Europeans, Chinese and descendants of African slaves. All of them lives together harmoniously, there is no ethnic stratification like I have noticed in some other countries.
"By the way, I congratulate the excellent initiative of your site, Karen. It shows fabulous [doll] models with natural hair crowns, who reinforce black pride. You can be sure that as soon as I have a daughter I will buy each single doll that you make!
Your advice to others: My message to the readers is - we can be feminine, modern, brilliant, attractive, stylish, sexy, trendy, creative, successful, and all of that with natural hair!!! Plates, braids, afro, locs, short... whatever the way u comb it, thank you to all the proud women who have a natural hair crown, and doing so, participate in the upliftment of black beauty!
