Meet beautiful amputee, Adenike Oyetunde living the life ( Photos)
By Patricia Uyeh
Adenike Oyetunde is a lawyer and an On Air Personality on a popular radio station. She is also the Nigerian initiator of Amputee United. She had one of her limbs amputated at the age 20. It has been 11 years after her surgery but her zeal for life is wonderful as she does allow her obvious physically disability take away her beauty and spirit. She has fully embraced her body and this time she has started swimming lessons.
On Instagram she posted lovely pictures of herself and wrote:
“It’s easier for people like me to wear tank tops, sleeveless tops, above-knee skirts(because I don’t have fat arms, or stretch marks); but, I have realised, not everyone is this confident.
Some can’t because they don’t like their bodies, others are scared of what people will say.
(P.s: please work on your body, if you really want a change) but in the mean time, LOVE your body. Embrace your body. That’s all you’ve got.
Today, I applaud bodies that have carried humans and are not as they used to
I applaud bodies that are undergoing some panel beating. I applaud me, for going out of my comfort zone to agree to doing this.
As I prepare to learn to swim (don’t postpone things oh, old age na wa), I love my body now, and will do even later. I feel very beaand spiutiful, because I am. So should you..#EmbraceYourBody”
