Its an interesting and very inspiring piece. Read below......

Talent time during the Pageant, I have a long story to tell you about this talent. Okay from the beginning of rehearsals I ddnt even know what my talent was gonna be, I wanted to dance buh I remember @fowlermodels telling me that 'whyning' wasn't a talent that ll impress someone so I had sleepless night looking for what else to do. My darling sister @vonniemakeovers wanted me to learn the guitar buh my trainer disappointed me and I felt I wasn't gonna learn that in 2weeks so I waived that off.
At some point I wanted to act a drama buh that ddnt click well . I went home to talk to my mum and sister , so I wanted to make an Ankara shoe and bag(I even practiced for it) buh I remember during talents you ll be given about 2minutes so the whole thing got me frustrated . A day before the pageant My sister tot of me tying a gele so I practiced that too and set off for school . During our overnight rehearsals when I said I was gonna tie a gele everyone gave me this "lol" kinda look.
I felt that wasn't good enough buh I resisted regardless . On the morning of the D-Day , my mum called me on phone and said I should sew an Ankara shirt and I was so furious cos I ddnt plan or even practice on it . I remember complaining to @missonyinye on how disorganised I was and she encouraged me. My mum sent my brother and aunt to me to bring the materials I was gonna be needing. Before we went out to display I told @fowlermodels that I was gonna be changing my talent and lol that look on his face like "this girl you have wahala".
So he changed the talent I wrote down before giving the judges the list. It was my turn to display my talent, I went there with God. I sewed an ANKARA shirt within 3mins , I was even dancing while on it. Thank you to all those that stood by me especially my family @sheila.obiezeani @vonniemakeovers @brendanobii7 @empressady @beautiful_handz @lilian_obi it gave me confidence. 
Oh well I want to Inspire people with this story. Always remember to put God first in everything you do, believe in yourself and one day you will get there.
