So if you think you have tried so much and want to give up, please don't back off yet. Wait till you read this touching message of the media personality Krysten Enem who shared her success story to celebrate her birthday!
She has this to say "Yayyy! My first post and it is my birthday today!"
Someday, I will be able to tell my story and hopefully inspire other struggling youths especially young women. I am teary-eyed just looking back but I am truly grateful. I can't seem to find the right words but for the first time in 9 years, I am not depressed, frustrated, sad or angry towards life. Today for the first time, I look back and I truly appreciate my journey, how much of a fighter I am, how far I have come, I appreciate how gracious God has been to me. I appreciate all the downs and lows, the tears, the sleepless nights, the homeless days, the hungry days. The days when nobody listened or believed in my dreams.
When I started my television show in 2012, all the NOs I heard, how I failed many times, but kept trying, almost but never giving up. I was fed up when suddenly in 2014, I met Mr Wale Akinlabi of PRTV and he gave me my first shot with my show. He gave me free airtime on his platform, Krystn Enem Show first aired July 1st 2014 at 3.30pm on a Tuesday. I was speechless, I just cried and cried.
My dream was now my reality. It didn't get easier but I kept pushing to achieve the initial goal which was to get on Africa Magic. One year and a few months later, Oct 3rd 2015 on a Saturday at 9.30am, my show aired on Africa Magic Urban. I was again speechless. I was on my dream platform.
I have just ended filming Season 3 and I now I realize for the first time that though it didn't seem like it, I have been growing. I am not where I used to be. Definitely, getting here is proof that I can achieve anything and everything I set my mind to. I am not where I want to be, not even close (I was wishing to throw a boat party this year..sigh* but ko si ego lol. Next year sha) But I am not where I used to be and will definitely get to where I want to be.
For every struggling sister out there, the storm will pass, just believe and WORK and NEVER give up.
Happy Birthday to all Aries Babies in the house and my birthday mates. Lola Omolola, thank you for being the champion of this great platform that has blessed me so much in such a short time. Cheers to life.
Happy birthday to you Kryten!
