Nigerian initiator of Amputee United, Adenike Oyetunde is embracing her body as she embarks on a new adventure, as she is now learning how to swim among other things.
Aside from being the initiator of Amputee United, Oyetunde is said to be an On Air Personality (OAP). The beautiful young lady as part of celebrating herself, took to her Instagram handle to gush about herself as well as, inspire others out there.
She posted a picture of her in a swim suit and the caption: “It’s easier for people like me to wear tank tops, sleeveless tops, above-knee skirts(because I don’t have fat arms, or stretch marks); but, I have realised, not everyone is this confident. Some can’t because they don’t like their bodies, others are scared of what people will say. (P.s: please work on your body, if you really want a change) but in the meantime, LOVE your body. Embrace your body. That’s all you’ve got. Today, I applaud bodies that have carried humans and are not as they used to. I applaud bodies that are undergoing some panel beating. I applaud me, for going out of my comfort zone to agree to doing this. As I prepare to learn to swim (don’t postpone things oh, old age na wa), I love my body now, and will do even later. I feel very beautiful, because I am. So should you..#EmbraceYourBody.”
It is difficult for any physically challenged persons to go about their day-to-day activities but this beautiful young lady is not allowing herself to dwell in the sadness of her disability but is embracing it gracefully.
Wishing you all the best!
