About Me:
15 year old Olivia Rusk has had alopecia since she was 2 years old. Though she has lost and regrown her hair twice since then....when she was just 8 years old, she shed her custom wig and bravely marched into her 3rd grade classroom without hair. Since then Olivia has lived her life openly bald. Having alopecia could have devastated her life, but instead it has given Olivia a powerful platform to share her message that "It's Okay to be Different", anti-bullying and teen suicide prevention. Olivia wrote and produced a music video, "I Could Be Great!" in 2008 and in 2009, she launched a lecture program in local schools through out Central Indiana. Olivia is an On-Air Kidcaster for Radio Disney 98.3 FM Indianapolis and has won several major awards for her efforts. Now Olivia shares her story in a new book, "Just Your Average Teenager, Who Happens To Be Bald". You can order her book at her website: www.oliviascause.org

Alopecia totalis
Are you age 18 or older?
