A model in Australia who lives with hair loss due to alopecia is hoping to raise awareness of the autoimmune disease. Lara Kitchen, 20, recently posted an Instagram video showing herself with and without a wig—and it’s been viewed more than 43,000 times in one day. “Doing this is the scariest thing I have ever done in my entire life,” Kitchen writes in the caption of the video, which starts to the tune of Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful” and shows Kitchen with words like “acceptance” and “brave” written on her face. She details how she began losing her hair in clumps when she was 14, and it greatly impacted her upbringing. Kitchen says she became “the girl that ‘wore a wig,'” and rumors went around that she had cancer.
