So Touching: Beautiful Nigerian Girl Celebrates 7 Years of Being an Amputee (Photos)


This beautiful female amputee has touched the hearts of social media users withan inspirational message about her life’s journey as a one-legged person.

She shared the photos above on her social media page and wrote a short piece titled: 

“TODAY I STILL REJOICE! Happy anniversary to me!”Read it below:


Today makes it the 7th year of my survival. I shall rejoice during the month of November because this is the month that I had my right leg amputated.  

When God decided that I can be a better person than what I thought I might have been.November – the month when I stepped into the gravel road,

 it was never easy; the pain, tears, heartbreak, torture, depression and all the negative vices you canimagine.After accepting myself for who I am, today I know happiness, love, care, faith, hope, strength and vision with a purpose to be alive because I never gave up. I was not cursed but God chose me to be His living testimony.

 He made it a point that I am different from majority. Look at me 7 years later, I am a queen and I have been positive.I am 20 years old, I am a confident young woman.

 I believe that disability is attitude. I believe I’m no difference from any woman and I cannot be defined lessthan that. Basically, I choose not to be defined by my challenges.

 So in my 7 years as an amputee, I have learned to have self-love, my clutches are my best accessories.

 I always have my beautiful smile as my make-up. 

It defines me before the world. It is the voice to my silence.


I see so much faith in myself and it scares me. 

To think of where I have been and where I am going makes me emotional. 

I will change the world tomorrow!I am happy with or without a limb!!FOOTNOTE:

(1) That something wonderful is going to happen even with all the ups and downs.

(2) Never take a day for granted.

(3) Cherish the little things and hug the ones you love.

(4) No pain, no gain.

(5) I believe we are all bound to face challenges and when they come, we have got to be strong.
