Statement from Ona

My Instagram is my life, and my fans are what my Instagram is all about. I do it for my fans because I love them. So it feels totally right for me to celebrate this epic milestone – 1M followers – by marrying one of my fans. After all, it’s my fans who got me here, so how better to give back?

Going through the hundreds of marriage proposals I received during my Wedding Contest has been the most moving experience I’ve ever had. I can’t believe how much love, brilliance, and true emotion my fans shared with me. They are truly the best in the world and I will always love them all.

However, there can only be one winner, and he has been chosen. His name is Sem, he speaks to my heart, and he wears an Eggplant Emoji costume. He is the man for me.

When I first watched Sem’s video, I wasn’t sure what to make of it. But the more I listened, the more I started to feel powerful things. Super powerful. Like more powerful than anything I’ve ever encountered. By the end, it was love at first view.

Sem’s bravery, passion, and honesty simply won me over. I also think we have a lot in common. I have been shamed and ridiculed for the photos on my Instagram just as he has been for his Eggplant Emoji costume. I’ve lost a lot of friends and family because of the kinds of photos I post just like Sem has lost them due to his desire to dress how he wants. Sem and I both just want to live freely and sexually just as we are. And now we can do it together.

I look forward to taking this next step in my life with Sem. We’ll be getting to know each other a bit over the next few weeks, but I’m committed to marrying him. Everything I’ve seen so far says he’s the man, or the fan, of my dreams.

To all the other applicants, thank you for being so amazing. Sem and I will never forget you.
