She Rocks Rough & Tough With Her Afro Puffs

Seven-year-old Natalie McGriff is the creator of The Adventures of Moxie Girl, a comic book about a young, female superhero. McGriff won $16,000 for her creation at a crowdfunding festival in Jacksonville, Fla.

The protagonist is a girl who uses a magical shampoo that turns her curls into super-powered Afro puffs. Her mother revealed that Natalie was having problems loving her hair and that was the origin of the story.

I decided to help Natalie write this book because she was having self-esteem issues regarding her hair and she hated to read. She now realizes how powerful and awesome her hair is and that in order for her to write a cool book, she needs to read more books and learn different words. – mother, Angie Nixon

I will be ordering comic books for some young girls in my life and you can too, as well as other Moxie swag! Wanna see more in this series? Contribute today!
