Last Friday 15-year-old Hanford High School freshman Kyrstynn Landsman got permission for her entire fourth period choir class to shave her head.

When asked how it felt she said,

Weird; it's not describable. I was nervous because people were bombarding me, when the shaving started I was OK. People backed off and I had time to relax."

Kyrstynn says, "My mom wasn't sure about it, my father thought it would be cool. My mother doesn't like short hair so I had to convince her to let me."

She asked the class to shave her head for cancer awareness, which kills an average of 564,800 people a year.

She says, "I feel amazing. It makes me feel free and confident that i can do anything without being judged."
