To the “FreshWomen” #teamOAU

#DearFreshwoman

There have been cases of freshmen (females) who have either been sexually or monetarily exploited by guys who were stallites (in some cases, both). These cases occurred because the girls were perceived as naïve. Permit me to bring to your notice that there will be guys standing at AngloMoz every night, some with cars or expensive gadgets that could catch your eyes, observing carefully like lions looking for a prey(or preys) to devour- young, beautiful, ignorant and fresh-blooded girls. They come, at first, like those who come in peace and harmlessness but the end of their mission is pain and regret.

Remember, first and foremost, that you are too precious to be carried away by the sugary words of any guy. You are too big to be moved by the “accolades” that he could present to you- like being nice, having a cool car, having a house in town, or even being able to speak impeccable English.

While I’m not asking you to run away from guys or push your face up when someone walks up to you or assume that all guys are out there to ruin your life, I urge you to be careful. Be as wise as a serpent and as gentle as a dove. Set your standards and stick to them. Don’t be shaken. Don’t be moved. You’re worth more than rubies. You are priceless, not worthless. You are greatly-sought after. You are a great woman. You command respect. Don’t let anybody deceive you. SHINE YOUR EYE. Have a wonderful stay on campus!

I Love You,
Orifunke Lawal.
