Even her school principal usually described her differently.

“I was always rídículéd in secondary school because of my height. I was always made fun of how slim and tall that I am.

“My name was almost uséléss in school because, I was always referred to as “the tallest” “osisi ogwugwu” “poll wire” “iroko tree” and “dogowa in Hausa”

“Apart from my classmates, my principal would call me “that slim tallest one” anytime he needed to be specific about me.”

Lilian prayed for height reduction

The young lady added that she was also ridiculed in her neighbourhood and would cry and pray to God to reduce her height.

She shared how she slept in a folded manner and changed her positioning when taking pictures in a bid to reduce her height. In her words:

“Because of that, whenever I want to sleep, instead of laying straight with my legs, I’ll fold them, cry and pray to God to reduce my height and never let me grow again. My legs would húrt in the morning.

“Whenever I want to take group pictures or with someone, I’d always bend, so that I and the person will be at the same height.”

How Lilian overcame her height problem

Lilian recalled hating and despising her height until her elder sister spoke highly of her physique.

“But then, my elder sister changed the narrative and my perspective. She told me I looked so beautiful and outstanding with my height. She told me to feel beautiful in my own skin and own it!

“Gradually, I’d stand in the mirror, make poses only I could see, from there, I started appreciating my stature.”

Lilian’s lengthy Facebook post was greeted with mixed reactions.

In a viral video, another lady stole the show in a marketplace due to her height.
