I Got Pregnant When I was 18

When I was 18 (going on 19) I got pregnant.

It was hard.

It was really frigging hard.

I didn’t know what to do

I didn’t have who to confide in (certainly not my parents).

I couldn’t sleep. I couldn’t think.

I was only a confused teenager who let fun and life happen to her.

I was obsessed with my condition.

I didn’t know if I should abort or let the child grow.

I had no inkling on what to do.

All I had was the foetus in my head.


You read that right.

The foetus (or should I say the baby) in my head.

I was pregnant with an idea when I was 18 going on 19

An idea that led me to take different routes to arrive at a particular destination

And guess what.

One of such routes is this post you are reading.

Ria Kosher is the baby I conceived when I was 18.

It’s the idea that has led me to take different routes such as starting up a web fashion magazine, Svelte Magazine, an email list, and embarking on a 100-day consistency journey of doing fashion.

I decided to dare myself to do fashion on Twitter for 100 days.

All because of the baby I conceived when I was 18.

But there’s a bittersweet truth though…

I didn’t abort that foetus.

I kept her.

And she’s still a toddler who is yet to start walking.

I mean, she’s still crawling though I’m showing her how to stand.

I want you to join me in showing her how to stand, walk and in due time…run too.

I want you to join me in leading her, 

the way I show you how to do fashion.

So, in due time, my baby not only walks and runs but also flies too.

You know they always say that it is a community that owns a child and not the parents alone.

You are my community.

Help me train and grow my baby, Ria Kosher.
