No, no. She didn't pull a "Britney." Debbe Ebben, Miss Chugiak-Eagle River (Alaska) shaved her head in the name of Children's cancer research. She'd made a promise to all of the people who donated that she'd shave her head, and she stood by that promise! Props to her! I really believe that this girl's inner beauty creates her outer beauty. She has already raised over $4,000 dollars, and this is just the beginning for her.
"You're proving it's OK to be bald regardless of whether you chose to be or not," Ebben said.
She is still considering whether or not she should grow her hair out in time to compete for Miss Alaska, but she isn't too concerned about it. According to Ebben, it doesn't matter if she has real hair or not by the time pageant time rolls around. She said she doesn't think having a shaved head will hurt her chances of winning.
"It's my job as a title holder to make a really bold statement, and to be someone that people can look up to, and make an impact on the community. And that was really why I fell in love with it. It was something that was different. It was something that was unique. It was something that I could do and accomplish in a community and was something that everyone could get involved with."
I just really think this girl is great! :)
