In an encounter with Sunday Scoop , Helen Paul said she didn’t regret sharing the true story of her birth.

She stated:-

“I chose the occasion to reveal the story of my birth because I dedicated the degree to my mother. There is time for everything and I felt it was time to tell the world.
“Apparently , it’s not even my story; it’s my mother’s. I am humbled and grateful to God for seeing me through the programme. Everyone was happy for me in my family. Even when I finished secondary school , everyone was excited for me. We celebrate each other in my household.”

According to The Punch’s Sunday Scoop , she said despite her father’s misconduct at the time , she had never held any grudge against him.

She stated:-

“I am on good terms with my father. Is there anyone who doesn’t have a cordial relationship with his or her father? That can only happen if you are a terrible child.
Regardless of what your father might have done to you in the past ,

your father remains your father. If I said I was not affected by it while growing up , that wouldn’t be honest.
It could affect anyone but I used my situation to my advantage. It inspired me to always do more and be the best , instead of being depressed.”

Helen Paul also stated that she was not done with learning , arguing that once one stopped learning , the person would stop functioning.

She said:-

“I like to learn; so , I will keep learning. Tomorrow , don’t be surprised if you see me learning tailoring or hairdressing.
However , there was a time I really wanted to give up while studying for my doctorate degree but I had the right people around me.
In life , you cannot do it on your own; you need certain people around you to achieve greatness.”
