mother of one, in her post, shared that she broke down immensely after realizing she didn’t make top 10 pageants.

She said that night was one of the worst nights of her life as she felt all hope was lost for her.

She went on to share how she cried for days before she made a resolve to move on with her life.

She wrote on Instagram:

Number 8 at the 2003 Miss Nigeria pageant. I thought I was going to win but I didn’t even make top 10. That night was one of the worse nights of my life. I remember just asking myself what I was going to do with the rest of my life because for some arrogant reason, I’d built a future around being Miss Nigeria even before the pageant held. Sigh. For two straight days I cried wondering what to do next.

I wanted to be successful. I wanted to be somebody. I wanted to be rich. And here I was being told that I wasn’t even good enough to be Miss Nigeria…lol.

After a few days of feeling sorry for myself, I got fired up. I said to myself, this life isn’t going to defeat me or pass me by. I must count. I’ll fight with every bone in my body to be successful. I don’t care how long it will take but one day, I’ll matter. Well, I’m still fighting but I’m doing very okay now!

For everyone fighting for their dreams right now and keep getting disappointed, please don’t let it discourage you. Failure is part of success. Every disappointment, every NO, everytime things don’t work out is for you to have a story to tell tomorrow.

As long as you don’t give up, as long as you’re persistent, as long as you believe in yourself and your dream even when others don’t believe… success will find you. And God will sit next to you and never leave your side. I wish you all well and I hope all your dreams come through.”
