…To The Girl With A Distinct Color/Unique Feature

“I don’t want dark skinned ladies in my office”.

These were the words which waved by my ears and struck me. Sometime ago, I had come to collect my appointment letter as I had been called earlier to do and on meeting with the HR, one of those little minded bosses made that ridiculous statement. 

I would understand if he was not a Nigerian like myself but on the contrary, he is- dark skinned in complexion, from the West who looked like someone in his early 50’s.

Ladies, I don’t know what comments you’ve received from people around you. Perhaps cruel comments about your height, skin colour, bust size, back size, visible scars, type of hair, weight or what have you, never let it get to your heart. Most people that dish out such comments are 2 out of a 100. Would you because of them, get depressed and desperately do anything to change who you are? Let me tell you, that will be the most foolish thing (permit my Greek) to ever do. 

I always say this, look at yourself in the mirror each morning and take ample time to admire those features. That’s what makes you unique. Determine never to change for anyone else you’ll loose yourself in the process. 

You are beautiful just the way you are. Ps 139:14.


I’m a Jesus Junkie, lovingly loving with common sense ;), a business-minded engineer, a sister, and a daughter who loves worshipping and connecting with my Source, my darling Saviour. Hearing from you is my utmost pleasure. Feel free at anytime to mail me.
