I remember walking the campus of UAPB with this young lady and the band trips with M4. Ahhh those were the days. 🙂 What I remember and admire most about Nell is her beautiful, bold, personality and spirit as ive watched her build her brand and make a name for herself in this world. So it’s my honor to present this weeks “Sister With Vision”…..Nell Coleman.
Tell me a little about yourself.
My name is Nell Coleman, born and raised in Little Rock, AR. I currently reside in New York pursuing my career as a model and managing an online movement called The Bald Movement. The movement is designed to help women regardless of their reason or desire of being bald to realize that Hair is like an accessory, whether you have it or not, it doesn’t determine your beauty or your worth, you do.
This movement was built based on my past insecurities that were developed due to allowing others opinions of me to define me. I was very insecure about my skin color, my teeth, but mostly, MY HAIR. I overcame these insecurities by realizing that I was beautiful because I SAID SO but of course, I made some changes. I got braces to fix my teeth, shaved all of my hair off to free myself from the stress that it brought, and embraced the skin that I’m in because my skin is beautiful. I gained confidence in myself that I thought I could never obtain but with applied faith and much help from loved ones, I reached my main objective which was to love and accept myself regardless of what others thought.
What does being “perfectly imperfect” mean to you?
Being perfectly imperfect simply means being me to the best of my ability regardless of my circumstances or flaws. I’m happy with me, I accept me, I embrace me and that’s what matters most.
If you had the chance, what would be one thing you would tell a young girl dealing with low self esteem or insecurities?
While living in Little Rock, AR, I worked with a small group of teens who were all insecure for their own reasons. My goal was to teach them that regardless of where they come from or what was told to them, what mattered most was what they thought of themselves. I’ve learned that whatever you allow to occupy your thoughts, it will magnify in your life, so I had to figure out what they thought about themselves and then help them to change that negative thought into a positive one. Though it was a challenge, with much practice of positive thinking, overtime they would begin to realize just how amazing they were simply b/c they trained themselves to believe this. This is the same thing I do with The Bald Movement. For more info in regards to the movement visit www.TheBaldMovement.com
Anything else you would like to add?
Bridgette, I appreciate you for allowing me to share a little piece of my life with you. I hope in turn this will also help others to realize just how beautiful and amazing they are too. As I always say, There’s nothing more beautiful than a woman who’s unafraid to be herself.
Peace & Love
