As she celebrates her 24th birthday today, Angel Smith, a former housemate on Big Brother Naija, writes a heartfelt letter to herself.
The reality TV personality shared pictures on her Instagram page, expressing her pride in her development.
She said she didn’t know how people could change and still be the same.
Angel is grateful to herself for being herself, for embracing her strength and self-worth, and for overcoming periods of self-doubt.
She said, “Dear 24,”
“I can not believe I met you but I’m glad I did. I’m glad my world didn’t stop when I was 22 and so irredeemably sad. Oh Angel, how you’ve grown, I can’t believe you were once 1, I watched you grow into the most remarkable woman, how you managed to change yet stay the same is a mystery to me. Thank you for being you even when it wasn’t the easiest thing to do, thank you for standing strong and proud, thank you for loving yourself and being kind to yourself even when it was the hardest thing to do and thank you for staying even when it felt like you were a stranger in your body, even when this place started feeling more like a prison and less of a home.
Song of solomon 4:7 says “you are all together beautiful my love; there is no flaw in you” you are indeed beautiful Angel, you are a testament of God’s power. May 24 be blissful for you, may your tears turn to happiness, May sand transform into rubies when you touch it and most importantly may your light speak for you. Happy 24th Birthday Angel, you are one heck of a crazy woman if I do say so myself but most importantly you are a star.”
