Becoming someone in a chosen profession is (surely) not a baby’s work, neither is it a result of few efforts, but of accumulated plans, strategies and doggedness.
However, it becomes easy for any child to scale through life’s hurdles when his/her mum is around: it is good when both parents can help the child but, a godly mother’s love for her child is unequalled.
Despite her young age, Regina Daniels has earned a name for herself in Nollywood. At barely seven years old, she rose to fame in 2010 when she starred in the popular film, ‘Miracle Child’. Since then, Regina has co-starred in movies with top stars like Ini Edo, Mercy Johnson, Chika Ike among others.
According to Regina, “Not all things come on a platter of gold. My mother did a lot for me. But these are memories I won’t like to share”.
Although, claimed that she did not really face any challenges, it must have been because her mother was always there, ‘guiding me and also protecting me’, she noted. Notwithstanding, we know that there is a place for personal efforts, especially, passion and interest – for any child to become what he/she would become in life.
The best thing I love about Regina’s story is that she is not jettisoning education for acting: as it stands, acting is already a business for her and entertainment for that matter – which had caused some young people to abandon their pursuit of education due to money, fame, and (absolutely) self-framed lack of time.
While it is through that money and fame work hand-in-hand, the two (with God at the centre) are needed to go through life a fulfilled person: hence, I implore every mother and would be mother to give boosts to their children’s career, passion, dreams, goals, education and/or purposes in life – it will come back as investment returns to them (the mothers).
