Here’s the inspring story Omosexy shared on her experience as a girl child:

“On today’s girl day, i will do an usual post true to me. As a child, i lost my father at age 12. I was sponsored by a great community of Ondo Men, The #EkimOgunClub, so i could continue my education. At age 15, i started to help my widowed mother, i started working in Entertainment Industry while going to school and working. Faced many challenges as a female child… talks of being loosed, perharps a prostitute, lack of freedom to mingle like male counterparts, rumours and fear of slander, sexual harassment … but one of my early dreams was to be great at whatever i chose and be side by side the best in the world” – @realomosexy

Omotola Jalade continued:

“I’m not totally there yet…. but that 12 years old IyanaIpaja girl did take care of her widowed mum till she died, took care of her younger brothers .. they are in marriage stages, now taking care of herself and her own family, taking care of few people she is privilegded to be able to. She has worked, spoken on, been awarded on World stages and has been compared to the people she admired when growing up from other parts of the world.. She is still working in progress. But don’t you dare underestimate the possiblities of girl child.
