The Nigerian social media streets especially Instagram and Facebook was all about Marilyn Oma Apunanwu on August 20th as she celebrated her birthday in grand style.
From stunning photos by George Okoro to private dinners to spa treatments to boat cruises and parties, the multi-talented media personality used her birth to remind us what it means to be young and happy.
In her first birthday post, she wrote:
“I STARTED FROM SCRATCH.
Step by step, pace after pace, errors and correction, failing and trying again, fears and tears, betrayals and disappointments, blood and sweat…
But today, I look back with not just gladness but hope and enthusiasm because I know that tomorrow will be better.
My name is MARILYN OMA ANONA, a millennial Nigerian woman with so many abilities, talents, skills, and cerebral power. While I am a lot of things because of my obvious versatility due to multiple gifts, my PURPOSE is simply to make humanity and our society better by developing the Human Resources in it.
I am constantly on the journey of leveling up in a bid to BECOME the best version of me.
My process has not been an easy one. I have faced lots of enormous challenges since I became an adult. I have been in situations that made me wish to take my own life. I have encountered circumstances that made totally loathe adulthood. I have passed through moments that made me feel greatly cheated by GOD, the universe and divinity.
But after the bouts of emotions and tears which are proof that I am human and a very young person, I lay back to do some assessment and analysis and I realize that I am doing so great and not giving myself enough credit because I have placed the bars so high for myself. I see my self in the realms of Einstein etc so anything less feels mundane.
But today, 20/08/2021… it is all about gratitude from me to GOD, the universe and everyone who has contributed positively to my process so far!
Thank you all for taking me seriously and loving me.
I am super charged for this new year and the goals I have set give me chills but I am sure they will be attained.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to this baby, the LEO QUEEN @omalivingshow . May GOD bless me beyond my wildest imaginations.
I am adopting the account number style this year…
Here is my account number should you want to gift me some Naira;
