"After the accident, I lost of my friends who were close to me. That changed me a lot, it gave me a lot of strength. It made me realise some people are there to stay and others are not. This is one reason why I choose very few people around myself," she narrated.

On her 32nd birthday, which she celebrated on June 1 last year, Georgina chose a peculiar way of commemorating the day by buying a ring and getting engaged to herself.

Georgina bought herself a ring, shopped for a glamorous gown, a moreish cake decorated with "Gee weds Gee" and dressed her maids in perfect red outfits to rock the event.

"I chose to do that according to the inner feeling in me, not because I don't believe in love, I do believe in love, I believe in marriage but I chose I will go for what I want, not what the society wants," she said

Asked what she really yearned for, the composed lady was quick to reply "happiness".

She disclosed her dream of getting married to a man and having a happy life but the day seemed too far from becoming a reality.

"You may choose to wait but will you wait for the rest of your life. I really wanted to be married to a man but it has taken longer than what I expected, that is why I decided I will go ahead and marry myself," said Georgina.

Despite the unusual move, she is still optimistic and looking forward to having children one day.

"After my wedding, the next thing is getting a child, that is where I'm heading now," she revealed.

On the options she is considering to have a child, Georgina said she will not mind a 'deadbeat' dad or any genuine man who will come in her life.
