Tiffany Hwang wants to help kids like her, who sometimes look in the mirror and don't like what they see.
"I kept losing hair every time I washed my hair, every time I was combing my hair," Hwang said. "And I knew it was way too much, like an abnormal amount."
Hwang has alopecia, an auto-immune disease that causes hair loss. She's had it since she was a young girl. Her most recent bout was last year, at 16 years old.
"Just knowing that I had this, I would constantly cry," Hwang said.
She got a wig, and that boosted her spirits and her confidence. So Hwang started a campaign to raise money and get hair donations to make wigs for kids like her.
