Beauties from the Start
"I was a little pudgy, and I had huge cheeks and a lot of curly hair."

"It looked to me that life was much simpler for people who did not have red hair."
"I was in a gang. I wasn't much good to them, but I had a couple of protectors, and if I got a belt, they made sure everyone else got three!"

"I looked like a cherub with a mischievous grin, as if I always had something up my sleeve."
"Dressing up to me was putting on a shirt with a collar."
