Aisha and the Trail

Aisha was a girl I went to high school with. Everyday, she wore a different headpiece to match her outfit. 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. This was taken on a trail in Branford, Connecticut. Aisha stands so strong and powerful while representing her culture and her beauty shines against the graffiti in the background.
