Sometimes, all you see is the picture but you know nothing about before the picture. The mood, the struggle, the work. On May 1st 2018, I had media rounds because I just came out of the Bbn house. I was already sad immediately I woke up because I knew next thing was “ ok,this person or that person is Styling you today.” I really just wanted to be the one to pick the cloths. I let them do all their magic on my body and they left. I sneaked into the bathroom, changed and sneaked out for my media rounds. After all the day’s stress, I was so happy I did what I wanted, I put my hand on my chest and had this picture taken with that face saying “ehen, I did it, so what? I pledged to do me always because I knew and was ready to face everyone that was waiting upstairs to scold me for changing my initial outfit. Fast forward to 10 months after. Today I woke up and decided to restyle this top that saved my life the first time I decided to go against the world, wear what I want and actually step out in it. Gaining my freedom was a struggle. I still don’t have it totally from the world but I thank God for sending people that are always ready to let me be Alex unusual and not Alex the celebrity. Behind all you see on the gram is a lot of scattered bits put together. Don’t ever be deceived. It’s not a bed of roses but the unusual girl won’t change till a day after forever . I love you all for loving me for me. I’ll always be the better version of the girl you met from day one. I pledge once again. Somebody please pass me tissue 😭. I’m emosh !!
