Plane Burn survivor Kechi shares unedited bikini photos to join #AsSheIs challenge on IG
Kechi Okwuchi, the 2005 Sosoliso plane crash survivor who has consistently inspired her fans all over the world, has joined the #AsheIs challenge and shared unedited photos of herself posing in a swimsuit, with a caption that explained why this is so important to her.
“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 me #AsIAm 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”
