Meet Ella The Enchanted Princess. She is an exceptional little girl. She is a beautiful princess! Princess Ella isn't any ordinary princess; she is extraordinary and an amazingly brave little girl! Ella was born with no hair, and this made her unique. She doesn't like the way she looks and hates looking into mirrors. Ella is a bald princess.
I created Princess Ella and wrote and illustrated a series of books to show how Ella conquers her fears. I wrote these books to inspire children and teach them that they are beautiful in their unique way! People are perfect just the way they are. Children have a special place in my heart, and through my books, I hope to teach children to believe in themselves!
My love for children inspired me to create Ella. I am a devoted mom of 6 and a grandma of 11. Children have always been my life, and I am positive and want to motivate them to be happy with who they are. I wanted to create a character that children can relate to and follow as she conquers her fears.
I am a Breast Cancer survivor and want to share how I poured my heart into my Princess Ella. I created this little girl with passion and love; I poured all my feelings of how it feels to be different and live in a world with people staring at you. As I was going through the many challenges of Breast Cancer, losing my hair was the one I conquered. I never wore wigs or hats to hide behind. I would wake up every morning put on my lipstick and face the day.
After losing my hair to Breast Cancer, I realized
that Bald Is Beautiful and that being bald doesn't
change who you are! I didn't hide my baldness because
I knew I was the same person with or without hair.
It didn't make a difference to me if people stared.
I knew who I was and I believed in myself. When
I did catch people whispering, it would make me
very very sad. I realized how mean people could
be. I felt in my heart the heartache that children
and adults must go through for being different! Understanding this feeling was when I realized that I had to help children and how they perceive themselves. I decided to create a Bald Princess to set a precedent! You don't need hair to be beautiful! And you don't need hair to be a princess either!
The reason I created a bald princess is that every little girl looks up to a princess' character and wants to be like them.
All children are not the same, so I concluded that all princesses should not be the same.
Fairytale princesses all look the same. They are thin; they have long flowing hair, big almond-shaped eyes, and fair skin. They have full, pouty lips and they never have smudged makeup or bad hair days. The only difference between any of the princesses out there was their hair color. Who looks like that? Some little girls just can't relate to them because they don't feel they are pretty enough to be a princess. That’s why I decided that we need a bald princess; a princess that is just as beautiful as the rest. The only difference is that she has no hair. And she’s not ashamed to show it. She says no to wigs and hats and embraces what indeed makes her beautiful.
I started with a little girl's face that was sweet and innocent! I kept in mind all the little faces that are unique! She is my creation; what makes Ella unique is that I created her with lots of love. All my emotions were poured into her to make her very special. Everything she feels is a part of me. My passion for life and children are a part of her. I gave her big purple-blue eyes, a button nose, and pink heart-shaped lips. I love dressing her and having her set an example to Believe In Yourself!
Ella's beauty shines from within, making whatever is on the outside unimportant. Her brilliant heart full of love, her kindness that she shows to others because she knows what it’s like to be different and her unfailing hope are all her most precious gifts to those whose lives she embraces.
I didn’t wait for Disney to create a beautiful bald princess for all the hairless little girls out there. I created her myself because I know what it is like to lose all your hair and have people stare at you. Her name is Ella The Enchanted Princess, and I think you’ll agree that she’s as beautiful as any other princess around.
Why make all princesses the same when none of us are the same? We should celebrate our differences because they are what makes us all special and beautiful. Children are the most fragile creatures of all! Ella, The Enchanted Princess, gives them the strength to keep fighting and helps them realize their unique beauty to embrace wholeheartedly.
