27-year-old Nollywood actress, Linda Osifo has taken to Instagram to share a sad story about herself on how she used to be mocked at school because of her tribal marks.
The beautiful actress disclosed in a lengthy Instagram post that the trolling got to her to the point where she wanted to have surgery to have them removed completely. But today, she takes pride in the same tribal marks and she’s happy she has them.
Back in elementary school in Canada, I remember being made fun of about my tribal marks and being asked if I got scratched by lions in Africa ??. The teasing got so bad that I tried surgically to remove my tribal marks…..(Ouch ?). I felt it made me so ugly and weird from everyone else around me because I didn’t understand why I had it in the first place! Now that I’m all grown and wise, I’ve come to realize how beautiful & unique it sure makes me look. True beauty does not come from physical attributes…true beauty comes from what is within. Here’s to the tribal mark gang ✊??
