Tiktoker, Naronate has opened up on how she lost an eye around four years ago.
The 24 year old beauty opened up to the BBC on how she was 20 years old in her hometown of Cameroon and selling food by the roadside with her mother when a man “accidentally” shot her as he was about to buy food from her.
The Cameroonian had only recently moved to the village after escaping the curfews and infighting between the French and English speaking parts of her country.
Since then, Naronate, now based in Cyprus, says – unsurprisingly – that her whole life turned upside down. People stares at her and laugh, she was unable to get work and her health is generally affected.
She is on TikTok as @Naronaro778 and Instagram as Naronette4.
