A top Nigerian matchmaker, Lara Kudayisi, shocked lots of people over the weekend when she stepped on stage at a self-development conference in Lagos and told the audience that during her teenage years she had a child, got 14 heartbreaks from different men and,worst still, she had 15 abortions! In her words:
“Yes, you heard me right. I have said it times without number and I will continue to say it. Child at 19, 14 heartbreaks and 15 abortions. It is my story and my experience. I own my experience. You must own your experience and be self-aware”.
Lara now uses her past as a tool to inspire other women. When she first made the confession on Facebook years back, some of her followers were shocked but as time went by, people began to understand her viewpoints and she now gets paid to share her experience.
Better known by the monicker, “The Match-making Mistress”, Lara who spoke at the ‘My Double Double Conference’ organised by renowned self-development expert, Paul Kayode Josh, at Muson Center Lagos, made it clear that her mission was to inspire everyone to achieve their life purposes no matter what mistakes they might have made in life.
Wow! What an inspiration!
