Self-Confidence Restored after Alopecia: Sydney’s Story

September 18th, 2014 by Chassin

 

 

Recently I had the pleasure of speaking with Sydney Olson, a 21 year old college student who has had alopecia areata for over 10 years. Sydney is currently a biology major and chemistry minor at Concordia University in Nebraska.  She was kind enough to share her story and many tips from her experiences with the condition. Those tips include opening up about AA to your family and friends, understanding how those around you cope, and how to be confident as a young woman with severe hair loss.
