Not my time to Die…..
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 air plane which crashed and killed 107 out of a 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.
Two years into my treatments in America, I decided I wanted to finish high school and enter into a good university by my own merit. 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.
