Then, there came my moment. I went up on stage, and everyone was distracted with other things. They thought I was also a lost cause. Behold! A loud voice with strong emotions of a true gossip came from the stage, capturing everyone’s attention! It was Me! Ha! Ooh the look on their faces, wondering who I was and where I came from.
Ooh yeah, I am Chioma and I am in the house baby, fear my name! It was indeed a beautiful and triumphant moment for me. It marked my full entry into the heart of the play. After that day, I auditioned for many other roles (and I was victorious with them too!) Sometimes the roles were strange and difficult, but they were still ultimately victorious.
