#DearErica, Nigerian


Dear Erica,

Erica, the beauty, the only star that rises in the NorthWest and sets in the NorthEast, the only Sun that rises in the West and sets in the East, you are different and unique. I missed your stage presence on the 19th of your destiny refreshing month due to the inconsistency of power holdings but your charming smile and warm embrace of others immediately caught my eyes when I finally restored my light and from then on, it was a rollercoaster of emotions with you each passing day. I saw through you, I related with your decisions as an only girl who is also more comfortable with male friends, your transparency was out of this world and as a sucker for loyalty, I could feel your pain deep down.Erica, my queen, I may not be proud of all your actions at all times but am proud of you all the time, better to be an imperfect realistic honest being than a “perfect” fake being, you learned and unlearned, you made mistakes and also made great impacts and now am sure you are better and bigger. My baby, you are never alone, you are YOU and YOU are enough. Alas, you conquered the giants, your fears and challenges and now Elites are forever the family you longed for and the family you deserve. Live smiling, live loving and live winning.
