“My hair is, like, my one place where I can feel safe, and I loved having wigs to express myself,” Lauren told WSMV-TV. “When they tore that off me, I felt basically naked, and I felt so insecure myself and just terrible.”

Her insecurities ended there, though. Lauren found light in a dark tunnel and took back her power! She shaved her head.

“My hair was one of my biggest insecurities, so I felt like he had taken my power and I wanted it back,” she said.  “When I walk around with a bald head, he’ll know that he didn’t do anything but give me more power to speak out to other people.”

The students involved have since been suspended, but Lauren’s mother is seeking a higher degree of punishment. According to a statement, Williamson County Schools “intend[s] to prosecute those responsible “to the fullest extent of the law.”
