Kirsten is an 18-year-old from South Africa. She said, “You can imagine me with my red hair and pale skin in the heat. Not the best combination!” Once she found HowtobeaRedhead.com, she began to feel like she fit into society. She always thought people wouldn’t speak to her because of her red hair. “Silly, but true,” Kirsten commented. “The name calling didn’t really help either. My self-esteem has always been very low and it has been hard walking down the street at times.” With age, she has come to realize if you’re lucky to have something rare you must hold tight and embrace it. Now, in this current day, she cannot imagine herself without red locks!
