Now in her early 30s, Kechi has spent the last 16 years refusing to be defined by her trauma. Follow her as she decides for herself what role her scars will play in her life before society decides for her.

Kechi’s story will inspire you to love and accept yourself as you are and confidently present your true self to the world.
