BBN new housemate, Angel revealed that she started harming herself when she was 14 years old.
Angel and the other housemate gathered to share a bit about themselves and Angel opened up about her battle with mental health.
He disclosed that she battled with depression which emanated form her high school’s high Academic expectations.
“I started out Education wise…I graduated from the Best Highschool, Merywood. Further down to University. I started out at the university of Lagos UNILAG. I was there for like two weeks. I didn’t go for any lectures because It wasn’t my vibe. I went to a really secluded high school so getting into UNILAG was kind of hard for me so I dropped out from there. I didn’t tell my parents. My mum doesn’t live in Nigeria. My mum came back3, she found out so she put me in a foundation school to go to London. I went to a foundation Programme for Mass communication but I dipped again because I realized i didn’t even know what I wanted to do and everything so basically, I have been cruising through life because I had like a whole mental health thing.
“The reason why I wasn’t into school was because of how hard it was in Merywood because our A was like sixty nine and our F was sixty one, so that was really hard for me, and because I live with my granny because my mum doesn’t stay in Nigeria, whatever I was doing wasn’t really enough for her so there was some form of pressure.
“Then I started self harming when I was 14, I guess I was depressed and everything. My mates have graduated now and I guess that is why I auditioned for Big Brother because it felt like everybody had figured out what they wanted to do except me so during the cause of me auditioning and me getting in and me making progress, I moved from a place where I felt I wasn’t sufficient to now feeling…” She said as her housemate ran towards her to give her a group hug.
