Child development and family relations alumna Swan’s children’s book featured on WABI

Bella Swan ’16, a University of Maine child development and family relations alumna and former Women’s Basketball forward, spoke with WABI (Channel 5, Bangor) about her first children’s book titled “Do You Know Your Hair is Like Magic?” Swan told WABI: “I want people to feel good about themselves to know that all hair is good hair and there’s not one hair texture that’s better or more desirable than the other. I think that you can be anything you want to be regardless of your skin color or the type of hair that you have.” WRDW-TV (Channel 12, Atlanta), WBRC-TV (Channel 6, Birmingham, Alabama), WLOX-TV (Channel 13, Biloxi, Mississippi) and KWCH-TV (Channel 12, Wichita, Kansas) shared the WABI report.
