12th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Aisha was a girl I went to high school with. Everyday, she wore a different headpiece to match her outfit. I was stunned by her beauty and asked if I could take pictures of her one day after school. She told me that even though she was old enough to not have to wear her headpiece, she still chose to so that she could represent her culture while living in America. Aisha is a beautiful person inside and out and this picture truly captures that.
