I try as much as possible to combine my academics with my interest in the movies. So, any day I am not shooting, I am in the classroom because I value my education. In class, it is a different ball game. You are meant to contend with people of diverse feeling. Some people are so happy with your achievements while some are envious. Some feel you feel too big while some others wish to be your friend.
I am not a fashion freak, maybe because of the religious home I come from. I try to wear anything that fits me well. There is no special interest. But I love wears I can just ship on. I am not crazy about fashion. You are likely to see me wearing jeans because they are so easy to find and easy to wear. I also love short skirts. Some people say I love to show my legs but it is just what I like. I don’t know what they mean by that.
I went to Ohabiam Primary School and also to Ohabiam Secondary School, all in Aba. So, in that sense, someone should see me as a complete Ngwa girl. My father is a strict disciplinarian, if you wish to know. He is a no non-sense man, maybe because of his profession. It was when I was in primary five that he called us and made us know that our names would change to his direct name. He made us change to his first name of Sylvanus. He loves all his children, but is somehow over protective. I don’t blame him because you never can tell.
Every woman looks forward to manage. I look forward to it because I am an adult. Even though my daddy loves me as a daddy should love a daughter, I look forward to eventually settling down with my own husband. However, I am not under pressure for marriage because I haven’t finished my studies. I am yet in year 2. But that notwithstanding, marrige is not about personality but about love. My fingers are still crossed because marriage is an institution and not friendship. It is someone you have to live with for better for worse or for better for best. I am waiting patiently for ‘Mr Right’. But I am not under pressure. God will help me decide and I leave everything to Him.
