Meet Kechi Okwuchi … Her story will inspire you!

The emotion behinds this video, the story of this plane crash survivor will have you in tears! It’s a blessing and a gentle reminder to us all, that we should never take life for granted and every single day on earth it’s another opportunity for us to be grateful and strive to be and do the best we can. What’s your excuse? What’s my excuse? Every single ounce of breath that we take is sufficient enough to get us going and dream our wildest dreams.

Out of 109 people, Kechi was one of the only 2 survivors of the plane crash that had occurred on December 10th, 2005 in Nigeria. A tragedy that the nation has never forgotten. Even though doctors gave Kechi little to no chance of surviving her injuries, after numerous (about 70 in total) chirurgical interventions, Kechi fought hard for her life and pulled through! A miracle if you ask me. She now lives in Houston Texas with her mother, and is living a fulfilling life.

What we should take away from this story, beside the fact that miracles do happen every day, is that no matter what may have happened, no matter what we may be going trough, as dark as the future may look, as long as we’re still alive and well, we should never give up on our dreams and goals. We should always cultivate a mentality and attitude of gratefulness… Remember, it could be far worse. This young lady has been through a lot (and I’m sure she still is), but her courage, her perseverance, her faith, and desire to make lemonade out of the lemons life has given her took her where she is today… and where she’s going! 

I’m living you today with this message in the hope that, Kechi’s story will move you and give you hope, and inspire you to go for that whatever dream you have deep in you. Watch the video below and see how she stuns the judges at America Got talents! 🙂 Enjoy!



Kechi is an inspiration for us all, and I admire her for her strength, determination and performance! I wish her the absolute best in life!

Thank you for reading!

Love, light, and blessings!
