|"We live in a society were shadeism is categorized and treated accordingly. Ella B. Jenkins is a long-awaited, inspirational representation of Black, Beautiful, Intelligence and most importantly Natural. She is a reflection of so many I admire, including myself and I am grateful to be her fan!"|
|Crystal Weston, Oakland, California|
|"I have lived in Oakand since 1994. I am a fan of Ella B. Jenkins because I used to wear my hair in afro puffs and, to this day, it is one of my favorite hairstyles. Ella B. has the potential to bring natural hair pride to millions of Black little girls, who, on one hand have an unlimited number of hairstyles to explore because of the nature of our hair and, on the other hand, are made to feel our natural hair is inadequate because it is different from the hair of most people. Ella B. has the potential to serve as a powerful symbol of Black girl pride."|
|Stacy A. Blackwell, Oakland, California|
|"I love Ella because she is a little black girl. She exemplifies the courage, power and strength of our daughters that are all of over this planet. I look forward to seeing Ella B. Jenkins grow and prosper. Also, she will be very pleased that her magical powers will INSPIRE other beautiful children of all creed to be spectacular in every way.
I truly do love you Ella B. Jenkins."
