NC: What is the best thing about being curly?
JS: Many of my friends spend hours in the bathroom curling their hair to perfection. The best part about being curly is that I already have hair that people spend hours to get! My hair always appears done, even if all I've done is wash it.
NC: What would you tell others to encourage them to embrace their curls?
JS: The most beautiful thing a girl can be is herself! If you have curls, rock them. They're beautiful, and you will be too!
NC: Tell us about your current and upcoming projects!
JS: I've been working in an adolescent psychology lab all year, and we're currently studying the affect of stress on preteen and teenage girls. I also volunteer at a nursing home in South Boston, and have heard the greatest stories from the residents there. When I'm not working or volunteering, I can be found drinking tea with my friends, laughing, or going on adventures in Boston.
