Newly crowned Miss Delaware Kayla Martell thinks that ‘Bald is beautiful’June 29th, 2010 - 9:22 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
Delaware, Jun 29 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The newly crowned Miss Delaware Kayla Martell thinks that ‘Bald is beautiful’. This is because she herself is bald and also happy with it.
She suffers from alopecia areata, which is a rare condition that leads to hair loss. Around 4.7 million Americans suffer from it, according to the National Alopecia Areata Foundation. Perhaps after the success of Kayla, these 4.7 million would get a new zeal in their life to achieve the unattainable.
At the beauty pageant Kayla was wearing a blond wig and she succeeded in beating 15 other pretty women to bag the crown. And she was lucky the fifth time around, as in the past she had participated in the beauty contest 4 times. Even though she wasn’t lucky 4 times, yet she had immense determination and was successful the 5th time around.
She appeared on the CBS’ ‘The Early Show’ and candidly talked about her plans for the future. She said that, “I knew that I had to be on Miss America’s stage, and I had to get there somehow. I think I can be a better Miss Delaware and a better Miss America by taking the wig off.”
