Sosoliso plane crash survivor, Kechi Okwuchi, is no doubt an inspiration to many seeing as she appears to be strong and brave despite her ordeal.
Kechi’s story serves as an inspiration to a large number of people who take to following her on social media. Well, it seems the internet has made the young lady feel like she is giving people a false sense of her reality.
In a new post shared on her Instagram page, the America’s Got Talent finalist shared photos of herself wearing a one-piece swimsuit as she boldly showed off her scars.
Kechi explained in her caption that the photos show her without makeup, filters, wigs or nice clothes. 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.”
Explaining further, Kechi added that her large following on social media has kind of pushed her to present herself in a perfect light and she does not like it.
The lady added that she took up a challenge to present herself as she is to remind people that it’s okay to be imperfect.

#AsSheIsChallenge #AsSheIs • • 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 @angelicahale 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. So this is Kechi #AsSheIs and I wanna tag my bestie @womiye and 1 of my all-time fav artists @yemialade to join me in bringing perspective back to instagram❤️❤️
