  1. Nigerian popular plane crash survivor Kechi Okwuchi has taken to social media to show off her battle scars and to treat her social media followers to yet another message of inspiration — and this time it’s of genuity

Kachi, 30, was on board the famous Sosoliso airplane that crashed on the 10th of December 2005 and was one of the only two survivors of the fatal crash. Over the years, the scar-clad lady has been the symbol of resilience to many Nigerians. And her life the source of inspiration to countless number of people across the world to draw from.

Kechi recently shared a picture of herself on social media exuding confidence and self-love, and then moved to clarify a certain impression that her tragic story has become a blessing in disguise that she uses to present to people a false sense of reality.

Though she did acknowledge that she feels a new kind of pressure that wants her to conform to a new lifestyle of perfection because of the rapid increase of her followers on social media.

The talented singer who made it to the finals of the American Got Talent show revealed that her photos are real and free from makeups, filters, wigs or gorgeous cloths.

She wrote. “So this is me as I am- no filters, no wig, no flattering angles, just Kechi in all her battle scars and glory lol… If you’ve followed me from the start you know that I’ve always tried to make it a point to share both the glam and not-so-glam parts of my life on social media, because I don’t want project a false idea of my reality on any platform.”

But the truth is, as more and more people follow me, I have started to feel the pressure to always appear perfect and put together online. I can’t explain it, it’s just something that unconsciously happened as I got more and more followers, and I don’t like it.

So I love that @angelicahala tagged me in this challenge. It made me remember why it’s so important to me to always be authentic on all platforms in my life: to remind girls, women and people in general that it is OKAY to not be perfect all the time. Yes, I want to be part of the movement of people that normalize being normal, in real life and online.”
