“I Hated Myself While Growing Up”– Chika Ike

The Anambra State born film producer and actress, Chika Ike, hinted that as a young girl, she hated herself because to her, she wasn’t as beautiful as her mates at that time.

She said: “Growing up I never saw myself as beautiful because I got bullied a lot by some people who were personally disturbed and drew strength from making  others feel bad about themselves. But as I grew older I started appreciating my unique beauty and understanding what beauty really means because I got to  understand our definition of  beauty differs from one another . What I see as beautiful might not necessarily be another’s definition of beauty . Beauty runs deeper than the superficial while to others it’s the superficial, some it’s confidence, some it’s naivety  and to some its more of the intellectual type of beauty and it goes on and on.”
