Actress-turned-evangelist, Eucharia Anunobi has shared how being in Christ helped her through the years.
The ‘Nneka the serpent’ thespian now preacher opened up in an interview with Vanguard on how her wealthy father stopped her university education because she is a female child.
She disclosed the bold steps she took as a girl at age 16 to get to her present position in life.
According to her, “I come from a privileged home, I’m ajebo.
” I’m the first born, we lived at no 5, Musa Yaradua,Victoria Island.
” In fact we were the last set at Federal School of Arts and Science.
” I have As in English, Government, Literature etc.
” At the end, I wanted to go to University but my father said he had no interest in training the female gender in his family after secondary school.
” With all his riches and my brilliant result he refused to sponsor me to University except the boys.”
Anunobi said that her colleagues made a mockery of her back then because she chose to go to church while her mates were involved with aristos and went to the big clubs on the island.
She added however that by the grace of God “I have a degree in English Language, a Masters in Social Work and I’m a Doctor in waiting.
“Where I go or sit they can’t.”
“I went back to school six years ago, I paid my way through the university through modelling. It is never too late to go back to school, age is not a limitation, there is need to get education,” the actress said.
Speaking further, Anunobi said that she is a movie legend because she gave her life to Christ and made him the master planner of her life.
The actress said that perhaps there’s a reason why God allowed her father to turn his back on her and her sisters.
“If I had it all maybe I wouldn’t have discovered who I am and wouldn’t have been as successful as I am today.
“In everything, I make my boast in Jesus Christ,” she said.
