Queens lawmaker honors tweens for donating hair to local nonprofit


Two tweens were recognized by Councilwoman Adrienne Adams on Monday, July 26, for donating their hair to a local nonprofit that provides free hair replacements to young cancer patients experiencing hair loss. 

Adams presented citations to Nafisa Qadri, 11, of Roslyn Heights, who donated 19 inches of hair, and Deleena Ramchan, 12, of Ozone Park, who cut off 24 inches of her hair locks at Rachel Hair Salon, located at 104-10 111th St. in Richmond Hill.
