“I never used to think that I was good looking. I needed validation, so when social media came, it was a no-brainer, great pictures, comments, I felt like I had hit a jackpot.
Then the bubble burst and I realise that some people follow you on social media just to point out everything wrong with you. They hated my performance, I was fat shamed. Someone actually said I looked like a DSTV remote control
“I cried and if you passed outside my hotel room that day, you would think somebody had died. People were wondering what was going on. I screamed at everybody, yelled at my manager. My boyfriend at that time tried to persuade me. I remembered he broke up with me later because I was becoming this angry lady.
The summary of my story is I allowed social media take a hold of me. I trusted it to give me something it had no ability to offer”.
