When her plane went down killing 107 out of 109 passengers, Kachi did not know they journey to recovery would be so tough, but a woman of resilience and gratitude for life, she gets on with life and living in her purpose.

My name is Kechi Okwuchi and I am a 26 years old, born in Nigeria.

On December 10th 2005, I was headed home from boarding school for the Christmas holidays aboard a local airplane which crashed and killed 107 out of 109 passengers, 60 of whom were fellow students. I suffered third-degree burns over 65% of my body, and I have had to undergo multiple intensive surgical procedures ever since.

I had a strong support system- my family, my friends and my faith- who believed that I would be able to overcome my physical and mental obstacles and achieve my goal. In 2015, I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of St. Thomas with an Economics and Marketing BBA. I am currently a market analyst for  African League Of Legends bubble, helping with the development of a marketing campaign for an African art show to be hosted by the non-profit organization in 2016.

  1. I am touched by the story of Kech and impressed by Kechi’s singing at American Has Talents Show. Thank God for her surviving the plane crash. I have a question. Does there exist a facial cosmetic surgery that can help her?

    Thanks for the response in advance to my email address: luyili@hotmail.com

    • Thank you Kechi is truly a spirit of wonderment and inspiration, so proud of her and even her show with Veteran Booby Henline, both blew me away with their attitude. I know she has been through 100 surgeries, but do not know exactly what has been done, she has 2 each year. You can always reach out to her.
