“I think that it was freshman or sophomore year, a teacher inspired me to grow my hair out to donate for cancer patients. So I did that for two years and it was the longest duration that I’d ever let my hair grow out. Unfortunately [now] I don’t have the courage to tell my barber ‘don’t cut it’ and to tell my parents why I’ve decided to grow my hair out in the first place… Normally my father just brings me to Boston, Chinatown, and they just cut it for me.”
