How I was bullied as a young girl – Chika Ike

Film producer and actress, Chika Ike, who recently launched her cosmetics line, Chika Cosmetics has recalled the sad memory of her growing up days.

The Anambra State born thespian hinted that as a young girl, she hated herself because to her, she wasn’t as beautiful as her mates at that time.

She said: “Growing up I never saw myself as beautiful because I got bullied a lot by some people who were personally disturbed and drew strength from making  others feel bad about themselves. But as I grew older I started appreciating my unique beauty and understanding what beauty really means because I got to  understand our definition of  beauty differs from one another . What I see as beautiful might not necessarily be another’s definition of beauty . Beauty runs deeper than the superficial while to others it’s the superficial, some it’s confidence, some it’s naivety  and to some its more of the intellectual type of beauty and it goes on and on.”

Ms Ike added that she has concluded that Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and everyone is beautiful in their special ways.

“Our imperfections makes use uniquely beautiful. I am beautiful, you are beautiful and everyone is beautiful. There isn’t a yard stick to measure beauty because it can’t be quantified or measured. So, i would advice young girls out there to stay positive, embrace you , love you and live you best life ! You really have only one life.”
