Nollywood actress Linda Osifo in a bid to celebrate her unique beauty has taken to Instagram to disclose that she considered undergoing cosmetic surgery to remove her tribal marks.
The screen star who also doubles as a television host revealed that she was teased mercilessly as a child because of her tribal marks.
In her post, she discussed how she was made fun of by her mates while she was in elementary school in Canada with some even insinuating that she was attacked by a wild animal.
She talks about how the crude comments made her feel ugly but she has now grown strong enough to realize that her tribal marks make her unique and beautiful.
She wrote below;
“It’s the Tribal Marks for me! 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.”
