Every successful story has a bitter portion. Actress Salma Mumin has painstakingly walked us down memory lane as she shared a heartbreaking story of her life.
According to Salma Mumin, her parents’ separation affected her life and she believes she wouldn’t have made some of the mistakes she’s done in her life if they were there to advise her.
Salma Mumin revealed that growing up she had to practically do everything for herself including taking herself to the hospital when she had to.
In an interview with Nana Romeo on Accra FM, Salma disclosed that, unlike the love, care and support other children had from their parent, her parents couldn’t give her that love again because they divorce.
She recounted she had to keep a lot of secrets to herself because there was no one to share them with.
Also, her parents never visited her at Senior High School she always watched others visited their kids and had to deal with the emotional trauma that came with.
“I can say I practically grew up by myself. I had to carry myself to the hospital when I was sick, just keep things to myself because there was nobody to say them to. A whole lot.”
“When I was in school, SSS, just like everyone had parents or guardians to come to visit them, I never had that. I had to be in school, eat the gari just like that. If food was coming or not coming when I go to school, that was it,” recalled Mumin.
Despite Salma Mumin’s sad past due to her parents’ absence in her life, it’s refreshing to see that she bonds so well with her mother.
She recently invited her mum to her eatery where she treated her to some good meals and her companionship.
