Alex Asogwa, the former Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) housemate, says being bullied by teachers inspired her to be successful.
The reality TV star penned a message to her teachers in school who she said called her “useless” for being an outspoken student via an Instagram post.
Asogwa recalled the “troubles and wickedness they inflicted” on her. She said it made her a “strong and successful person.”
Asogwa also urged people — particularly teachers — to desist from using words like “you can never be useful” on their students.
“A message to all my teachers/ bullies that said I’ll end up useless because I was that one student to speak when everyone was scared to do so,” she wrote.
“Back in the old days, you didn’t believe. Now I’m flashing. Not just me, check out every other child you were mean to Mrs Kiwa, Mrs Enem, if you know the names congratulations. Rest in peace to the ones we lost.
“Thanks for your troubles and wickedness. It made me who I am today and will still make me a thousand folds bigger. I only wish all teachers understand the benefits of being nice.
“To those that look down on people now, say mean things and underestimate people, you never know tomorrow. We all still have a lot of progress coming our way.
“To the teachers that use words like ” you can never be useful, useless child” on students, pls desist from your evil ways.”
