We’d be dealing with PRECHUS , her famous Instagram comic character later but today,we’d be talking about the amazing Steph Isuma, popularly known as Calabar Chic on Social Media.
How Steph Isuma, who doesn’t look anywhere close to her comic characters in real life, exudes so much comic energy remains unknown to us.
Over the years, we’ve seen her share her sad life stories which are very sensitive and we’ve also seen her rise above the adverse effect these experience caused her.
“I was Raped at 14 & Attempted Suicide” – Steph Isuma…
One of such experience, she revealed in a chat with Saturday beats was that of how she was a victim of rape at the tender age of 14.
When she was asked to throw more light on why she made the shocking revelation to her growing fan based, she said she did it to Inspire others especially victims of rape and sexual assault.
Below is an excerpt of what she said;
“I shared my story to inspire hope. I want people to know that depression is real and that they are not alone in whatever they are going through. I battled depression for a long time after I got raped at the age of 14 and I attempted suicide on a number of occasions. Since we don’t take issues of depression and sexual abuse as seriously as we should in our society, I decided to shed more light on the matter by sharing my story with people.”
Steph disclosed that speaking about her horrible experience was therapeutic for her;
“For me, speaking about it was therapeutic. While trying to help others, I was also helping myself. I decided to share my story because I had spent so many years in hiding, and I felt if I could inspire just one person, I would feel fulfilled.
I didn’t want my story to be untold when it could inspire some people to help themselves. I have come to understand that living is an act of bravery, and as happy as I appear to be now, there were times I fought hard to get through the day.
The truth is that some of the people we look up to, who appear to be the strongest, are also fighting some tough battles.”
