My book is a ‘narrative of my triumph over adversity’ – Juliet Ibrahim

Actress and author of ‘A Toast to Life’ Juliet Ibrahim has disclosed what birthed her novel, indicating that the piece captures the challenges she’s faced in life and how she has been able to deal with them.

She tells Sunday Scoop, her bitter experiences inspired her to author the book, hoping that persons who may be going through similar challenges would drive inspiration from her story.

“It was very therapeutic for me. I honestly didn’t even realise how strong I was until I put together all my experiences in this memoir,” she says. “I have had experiences that would probably break the average person, but I survived. My gratitude to God is the reason why today, I can give a toast to life.”

“There are so many experiences I have had and life lessons learned along the way. I would also say the book is a memoir, and it is a deeply personal narrative of my triumph over adversity faced at different stages of my life and my journey to true self-love.

“By telling my story through this medium, it is my intention to uplift readers, and remind them that despite the many challenges experienced, there truly is always light at the end of the tunnel.”

The actress on Sunday, August 4, unveiled the book at a short ceremony held at Civic Centre, Lagos. Hosted by Denrele Edun, the event was attended by friends, well-wishers, and industry colleagues including Honorable Abike Dabiri (represented by Mrs Yemisi Ibrahim), Chief Dele Momodu, Elvina Ibru, John Ogu, Kabiru Rabiu, Gloria Ibru, Sujimoto, Praiz, Tewa Onasanya, Oge Okoye, Pretty Mike, Skuki, Eniola Badmus, Adenike Oyetunde.

Highlights of the event included readings by RMD, Charles Otudor, Noble Igwe, and Chigurl.
