Angel Smith, better known as Angel, has told how she dropped out of two prominent universities.
Angel revealed that she dropped out of the University of Lagos owing to sexual assault during an interview with media personality Taymesan.
The reality TV personality revealed that she only stayed for two weeks and was unable to continue due to the experience, which she described as “traumatizing.”
She said: “I was in UNILAG for only two weeks. I struggled so much for those two weeks because when I got into UNILAG was my first sexual assault experience.”
Angel stated that she tried so hard to move on with her life as if it had never occurred, but she couldn’t hold it in any longer.
“It affected my school life so much. I always blamed it on not knowing what to do in UNILAG when actually, I’ve always been fully aware of what I wanted to do”, She said
The 22-year-old had spent her childhood with her grandmother.
Angel claims that she went from wanting to be a gynecologist to being so proficient at English that she won multiple Spelling Bees and improved her writing abilities.
She went on to say that she always knew what she wanted to do, but she didn’t do it since she had gone through something horrible and didn’t tell anyone about it.
“Especially not my granny because I had so much shame,” Angel said.
She added, “Nobody knew I was out of school until my mum had asked and I was like, ‘let me finally be out with it’.
“When I told her that and she asked me why I did not tell her what happened. I just told her I didn’t think I was doing the right course.”
Angel revealed that after the University of Lagos incident, her mother enrolled her in a foundational programme in the United Kingdom, which she also pulled out of.
She said she left out since she didn’t know what she wanted to accomplish with her life at the time.
