In December 2004, Amarachi, an 18-year old young woman got married to her husband, Kanu Nwankwo, a famous Nigerian ex-football player. Amidst criticisms that she was too young to be married, Amara proved her critics wrong fourteen years later.
Reminiscing on the past as a teenage mother, Amara said it was faith and resilience that saw her through as she celebrates her first child’s birthday.
13 years ago today. I didn’t know what I was doing. How I was going to be a teenage mum amidst so many Internal and External critics. I was very career driven. How was I going to drop school and take care of my new Valentine baby? But I had faith. And an incredible amount of resilience that saw me through. I remember my mum telling me that what I had in my hands was greater. And then that’s when I looked down at his lovely head full of hair and let out a grateful sigh and this shot was taken. Picture Perfect.
Being a mother is one of the most highest paid jobs in the world since the payment is PURE LOVE. I’m glad I took the leap. Sean Boy. You rock my body.
Happy birthday @sean.kanu My Valentine. My love. My motivation. .
I’m emotional today. My baby is a teenager. .
Don’t give up on your dreams my lovers. .
