Still Rocking My Crown: A memoir about a mother and daughter's experience with alopecia

Brielle Belay

"Still Rocking My Crown" follows Jenise and her 10-year-old daughter, Brielle, as they face the unforeseen challenges of Brielle's alopecia diagnosis. Brielle had been a rising star in the modeling world since she was a baby, her beauty earning compliments wherever she went. But when alopecia occurred at the age of eight, robbing her of her hair, brows, and eyelashes, Brielle felt she had lost more than just her physical look; she believed she had lost her identity.


As Brielle struggles with her changing appearance and the issues that come with it, Jenise wrestles with her own concerns and uncertainties as a mother. She lost her sense of control and ability to protect her daughter. Together, they go on a journey of self-discovery, perseverance, and empowerment, redefining what beauty truly means along the way.


Through candid storytelling and reminiscent images, "Still Rocking My Crown" allows readers to experience the highs and lows of Brielle and Jenise's journey, from the initial shock of hair loss to the empowering realization that beauty exists inside. Their narrative is one of victory over hardship, as Brielle continues to succeed in beauty pageants, acting, and singing, demonstrating that the show must go on regardless of the hurdles she meets. Brielle exemplifies the human spirit's resiliency and serves as a beacon of hope for anyone who has ever doubted their own value. Brielle and Jenise's story conveys a message of courage, acceptance, and love, encouraging readers to embrace their own individuality and find strength in their vulnerabilities.
