NAAF is proud to announce a workshop opportunity at Girls Garage for teen girls and gender expansive youth between 7th and 12th grade who live with alopecia.

In this workshop, participants will explore the complex ways in which alopecia areata impacts their daily lives. Participants will collaborate to create risograph prints* with words and images that give voice to their personal experiences, and in doing so, provide validation, hope, and inspiration to others in the alopecia areata community.  

Each participant will take home 15 risograph-printed signs, adorned with block stamp designs.

Applications are open and will be accepted on a rolling basis until 20 students are enrolled.

There is no charge for this workshop.

Teen Boys Virtual Support Meeting

Monday, April 29, 2024 | 7:30 PM, EDT

Hosts:  Rafi & Ezra

*Note:  If this is your first time attending, you must RSVP and fill out a form prior to attending.

Rafi Wasserman (29) was diagnosed with Alopecia in the 1st grade and has been involved with NAAF in various forms ever since! After receiving such great support at his first conference in St. Louis, Rafi has enjoyed building an ever growing Alopecia community through working with NAAF and attending 17+ conferences. Outside of AA, Rafi is a native of the Chicagoland area and currently resides in New York City where you can find him running, spending time with friends and following his favorite sports teams (Liverpool FC and the Chicago Cubs).

Ezra Key-Cohen (18) is a college student attending Wesleyan University. He was diagnosed with alopecia universalis at 11 years old, and lost all the hair on his head, eyebrows, and arms/legs in the weeks after his diagnosis. As a young boy, admitting that he was suffering because of his appearance felt emasculating. In recent years, Ezra has gained the strength to seek help and talk about the challenges he experiences with alopecia. Outside of being a youth mentor for NAAF, he enjoys creating short documentaries, playing guitar, and watching football (Fly Eagles Fly!).
