It's My Birthday and I am Ever Grateful!

Posted in: , ,

It's funny, I was speaking with my sister last month on her birthday and how the years are flying by. Today, as I mark another year added to my life, I thank God for bringing me this far. The past few years have been a mixed bag, I've been happier than I've ever been, and I've been sadder than ever too, but in all things, I remain grateful and content, knowing it is a journey and I'm still on it.

Ezinne Akudo, Miss Nigeria 2013, Writes on How to Stop Rape and Help Victims Become Survivors

A Shout Out To Haters and Losers By Charly Boy Oputa

Posted in: ,

The other day I was at the departure hall at Nnamdi Azikewe airport waiting for my flight. I was tucked away at a corner, from people's preying eyes, at least so I thought. My flight was delayed so I had about 2hrs to kill. As I reached into my backpack to get my iPad and keep myself busy till boarding time, a man with two teen girls approached me; they were all beaming with the most enchanting smiles I have ever seen.  "Charly these are my daughters, they’ve been worrying me that they want to take pictures with you” I obliged, as their father took position to capture a golden moment for his two teen daughters.
