Angel Smith Reflects On Attaining Success At 21
Angel Smith gained mainstream prominence in 2021 when she participated in the Big Brother Shine Ya Eyes competition.
She finished as the second runner-up of that the 6th Big Brother Naija edition.
Reflecting on her journey as a superstar, Smith wrote,
“When I was younger and I’m still relatively young Lmaoo , I used to say “my life isn’t perfect but at least it’s okay”.
She went further to write,
“I’m 23 today with a new found vision, that my life IS perfect, the tears, the struggle, the heartbreaks, grief and all the losses are what gave me strength to drag myself into today and I am sure 14 year old me who wanted to give up thinks I’m an absolute icon.
My life is perfect as is.
It doesn’t matter what tomorrow holds, not the frustration, the uncertainty, the demotivation, I am here, present and it’s perfect.”
In the latter part of her post, Smith revealed that she is proud of her achievement.
She went forward to write,
“Time, I can think of all the many things you’ve taken from me and I can think of all the second chances you never gave me but today I remember that which you have given me, life and the grace to see 23 years although very tumultuous.
You’ve given me one more year around the sun and I will use it wisely.
Here is to more drunk calls with my friends, here’s to laughing until my tummy hurts, here’s to falling in love and falling out of love, here’s to one more hug from my mum, here’s to getting heartbroken just to piece myself back again.
I embrace the entirety of life, the good, the bad and the ugly, that’s what has made my 23 years on earth perfect, oh and I hope 14 year old Angel knows we have sick tattoos now, she would have thought I was such a cool ass person. Happy birthday to her.”
