Sammy's link with alopecia:

Hi! My name is Sammy, and I have been living in London for the last 5 years. I have had alopecia since the age of 3 years old and have had quite the rollercoaster journey. Now at the age of 30, I want to be able to support others through my own experience and provide a comfortable space for young people to meet others going through a similar situation.
