Born in poverty, raised in adversity, she grew up amidst challenges.
Her talent was grudgingly noticed, remained unacknowledged and never encouraged. She was expected to lead a mediocre life, try to excel at things she did not like, and be constantly berated for non-achievement. She tasted toxicity, survived it and learnt to hit back at the narcissistic psychopaths surrounding her.
She was not a narcissist herself. She discovered her own talents over a period of time. She excelled -because at one stage, she thought she was inadequate. She breathed free – because at one stage, she felt incarcerated. The star made an appearance on the horizon, because she knew that nothing is forever.
She was the stuff legends are made of.
