Before she was a successful doctor on Married to Medicine Los Angeles, Imani Walker was just an average college student with big dreams... and long hair! The psychiatrist has made a name for herself in LA for her passionate and dedicated work, but also for her striking look: not only is the beauty over six feet tall, she's also had a bald head for over 20 years (by choice, as clarified in an Instagram post from earlier this year).
Given that college graduation season is in full swing, Imani couldn't help but think back to when she was preparing to walk across the stage at Xavier University of Louisana and begin her career in medicine. So, she took to Instagram to share a throwback picture from her college days and recognize the graduates who are preparing to enter the adult world.
"Graduation season got me thinking about my graduation from @xula1925 22 years ago," she captioned the image. "I have no idea what I was contemplating but it must have been good. Congratulations and good luck to all those turning their tassels to the other side this year!"
The image gives a close-up look of Imani laying down, with her long braids spread out around her. So, if you've been dying to know what her locks looked like before she shaved them off, you're in luck. Keep scrolling to see the then-aspiring medical professional, circa 1997.
