Chef Hilda Baci has sent an important message to those criticizing her style of dressing.
The 26-year-old chef who recently broke the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking time by an individual in a recent interview urged Nigerians to look beyond her dressing.
According to her, she doesn’t have to be dressed like a nun to make an impact on people around her. Emphasizing that she’s a beauty with brains, Hilda Baci noted that one can be attractive and still be a game changer.
“I don’t have to be dressed like a nun to make it in life. One can be sexy and still be amazing, beautiful, and smart. I shouldn’t be taken back because of my looks or dressing, as this does not determine my values or endowment.” She said.
However, this comes after photos of her in racy outfits revealing her curves made the rounds following her historic feat and elicited a barrage of reactions from Nigerians.
Just recently in an interview with TVC, Hilda revealed that she was once homeless.
“A lot of people see this buzz now, and most of them think I dropped from the sky. They don’t know I was homeless at some point. There’s an entire phase and journey that got me here, and I’m not even done.
“This is still part of a journey. I’m still on a path, and I’m still going. It’s not always going to be rosy. It’s not always going to be easy. But we need more examples like this so people can say, ‘Hilda did it, so I can do it as well.” She said in part.
