Since then, She has contested in and lost 8 pageants, and each loss was like more steps away from achieving her goal.

 

20160601080655.jpgFinally, on the 28th of May 2016, she beat out the 18 contestants to emerge winner of Miss Nigeria USA 2016.

screenshot_2016-06-01-08-04-35-1.pngFollowing her struggle story, the journey hasn’t been an easy one. Trying to achieve a particular goal and failing in the attempt on so many occasion is enough to question one’s self esteem and the determination to relentlessly continue at the same goal despite discouraging results is quite a feat and a virtue many of us lack.

Colin first met in Sally – a mother of four – in 1972 behind the bar of a social club he visited every weekend after work. After a while, he asked her out and she said ‘yes’

‘Sally used to serve me every weekend when I’d go in after work. We got chatting and she got used to me going in. Eventually, I asked her out.’

We’re elated to share all their happy moments today

 

How They Met.img_20160505_162737.jpg
Bride’s story;img_20160505_162803.jpgI woke up early one morning in December, 2014, to a message on my WhatsApp from a strange number. And of course I replied with the usual “please who are you and who gave you my number?”
He answered only the first question “I am ordinary Charles”. This only got me angry and I immediately told him off. I had no time for such rubbish! Lol

He was however persistent and somehow I started replying his chats and even looked forward to our conversations. Of course he didn’t know this, I was still playing hard chic! Then after some weeks (few days after Christmas I think) I decided to drop by his office and see who’s been disturbing me since it was on my route. Just to be sure he wasn’t one dude with a burnt face or…. well the list is just endless. I dropped by his office, and coincidentally, I saw he was someone I had met over a year before but just joked with him and left. We talked for a few while, before I left he already said I was going to be his wife. Of course I called his bluff!

We kept on talking, then we started dating and I realized what a truly wonderful guy he is, I know everyone says this about their partner but believe me, Charles is really a wonderful guy and if I have any regrets, it’s that I didn’t  date him earlier!

6 months later, he proposed and true to his words the first day we met, today, I am his wife.
