Capps' hair began thinning at a young age, and he was bald by the time he was applying for jobs as a college graduate.
"I was really excited about an opportunity of sharing financial papers and calling on banks and businesses. They sent me to Atlanta for the final interview and had an extraordinary visit, spent three or four days meeting nice people.
"And then on the last day, when they brought us in to give us our review and whether we made it or not -- then they were just casual enough at that time to say, 'you know, the image of our company does not have room for a bald head. We are dealing with young people, you are going to be associated with young people, and baldness is kind of associated with more mature people. We need our company to represented by somebody that has hair.'

I'm 22 and I'm severely diffuse balding. I thought it was even all over, but I just looked in the mirror and noticed my crown area is extremely thin, to the point where I can fully see my crown. A lot of people ask "is this your first time going to grad school?", even though I'm pretty much the very youngest a graduate student can be (I just turned 22). Now when I graduate I will be a NW7 with a masters degree and zero work experience. They will throw my application in the trash once they see I am balding, because they will think I am probably going to retire soon, or because they think I'm too senile to do the work.
