Last year, Coca-Cola awarded 22 teens a $5,000 scholarship and an invitation for them and their guardians to attend the Academy.

As the mother of a teenage daughter I am constantly on the look out for ways to style her hair naturally without using heat or chemicals. She has a head full of thick gorgeous hair and up until now she has been satisfied to wear her hair in twists, braids and/or plaits. She is older now and will be entering high school soon so we have been experimenting with loose styles and trying out appropriate styles for teens with natural hair. I have taken great care of my daughter’s hair throughout the years and it hangs below her waist when it’s wet. Shrinkage quickly camouflages the fact that she has any length at all with her hair shrinking up to her shoulders when it goes from wet to dry.
