Veteran Nollywood actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo has penned an awe-inspiring message to the little women in his life; his daughters and grand daughter. The 55 year-old counselled his girls to be comfortable with themselves and never succumb to the society’s standards of beauty adding that all the need to achieve greatness is inside of them.
“Dear girl-child,irrespective of your age, pedigree, social status, race, tribe, faith and/or
appearance, you have the ability to be who or what you wish to be. Everything
you need is on the inside of you, so all you need is to look within.
You don’t have to be skinny to look good in a dress. You don’t have to be tall
to be gorgeous, you don’t have to have long curly hair to be fabulous, no
matter your skin colour, YOU-ARE-BEAUTIFUL!!! You don’t need a man to fulfil
your dreams, you don’t need a foreign accent to “be all that”… You just chin
out, square out, keep your head up, take a deep breath and take the world by
storm.Again, EVERYTHING-YOU-NEED-IS-INSIDE-OF-YOU, never, forget it.And to those of you who think it’s too late or think you did not start on time,
-nah baby, it is NEVER too late to start so start today.As a proud father and grandfather, I say Happy International Day of THE GIRL
CHILD to all of you amazing girls
