After telling her mother Qui Daugherty, who is also a coach about the bullying she told the little girl to not forget who she was.
Little Promise announced that she was going to go back to school with her hair "bigger and better than ever!" She also had a piece of advice for people who were watching the video.

Yes. I’m going to show this to my oldest. She went to school with her hair the same yesterday. She wanted to change her hair this morning and I wouldn’t let her. I told her the same thing that your mother told you. Your hair is gorgeous and always remember that.In a follow-up video, Daugherty said that she was proud of Promise. She said, "She's an awesome girl. I just really want her to continue to advocate for herself and be comfortable with herself and be confident with herself. And just know that it's okay to be yourself."
Go Promise and Mom! We are so proud of you both!
