“Chasing my passion. They called me a story teller and today the story has yielded result. Nkiruka, you have earned it. So I gift myself this Benz as my 29th birthday gift. Happy birthday to me. Thank you, Instagram. You made me a millionaire, turning billionaire. For the first time in my life, words have failed. See calls, my dm, I see the notifications. Who I be? Instagram has made me a celebrity. My hands are shaking. This birthday is the best ever. I have forgotten all the long speech I was supposed to write. I am just filled with smiles. Let us do a live video. Happy birthday to me. Just because you asked I will share. It all began few years ago, in my times of pain and depression, I desperately needed someone to talk to, I had no friends, and was too ashamed to talk to family because of fear of judgment. I carried a burden as a young girl with no one to help. I went from church to church, prayer house to prayer house but no solution, nobody was listening. All they said was pray pray, but I have been praying. Let me express myself. Some twisted the Bible upside down. They asked me to go back and beg the man who abused me, domestically violated me and more, I had to go because I wanted to respect the Bible, but he rubbished me. I knelt down in the stress of PH, water lines just by everyday super market begging a man to love me and he told me over his dead body (Nkiru, even if my father wakes up from the grave I will never ever ever again.I wept on the road as people watched me when he zoomed off. I gathered my bundle of shame and went into depression. He said I will amount to nothing but a prostitute if I leave his house. I begged this man to take me back because I was so scared to face life, but he refused. I wanted to die. Little did I know that it was just a process, a fortification to greatness. Little did I know that some day I will use the story to inspire and teach other women how to be strong. Then I took on my journey, it was not easy but I kept pushing. Came into social media, saw it was an open ground, a free place, then I decided to write my story. I penned everything down and felt better, relieved, that was when the dream of @break_or_makeup began. I decided to tell stories, like a joke people began to share too, like a joke the world began to share. And that was it. My name is Okoro Blessing Nkiruka. Born 23rd of May 1989.
