May 21, (THEWILL) – Big Brother Naija season 6 finalist, Angel Smith, has opened up about her short-lived stay at the University of Lagos.
The reality TV star noted that she only spent two weeks in the institution and her dropping out was in connection to a sexual assaut experience she had.
She made this known in an interview with media personality, Taymesan.
“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”, she said.
The 22-year-old writer added, “After that experience happened, I can remember just moving through it and pretending like it never happened.
“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.”
Angel, who grew up with her grandma, noted that she moved from wanting to become a gynaecologist, to being so good in English that she won several Spelling Bees and boosted her writing skills.
“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 obviously did not tell her what happened. I just told her I didn’t think I was doing the right course.
“Then she enrolled me in a foundational programme in the UK, which I dropped out from too.”
She said she dropped out because she didn’t know her direction or what she really wanted to do at that point in her life.
