Did You Miss This? Now’s the Perfect Time to Watch Kechi’s 2016 TEDx Talk – “Girls, Know Thyself”




Kechi Okwuchi has been trending on social media for several days now and it’s all for the right reasons.

Click here if you missed her exciting ‘America’s Got Talent’ auditions.

Prior to her AGT auditions, Kechi gave an inspiring talk at TEDx Talks in December 2016 and recently we stumbled on it again and thought to share. Kechi got a standing ovation even before she had said a single word.

Her life story – plane crash survivor, graduating magna cum laude from college- is inspiration enough. Kechi’s talk birthed many tweetable moments: “Know yourself and know your vision.” “Your scars do not define you.” “It’s your passions that give rise to the vision you have for your life.” And so much more. Words to live by from a young lady whose strength is simply phenomenal.

Despite many setbacks and over 100 surgeries, Kechi remains one of the most inspirational people you’d ever meet.

Watch it below.

    Inspirational! I was telling someone just yesterday that apart from the grace of God….another thing that would have shaped Kechi into the awesome woman she is today is the fact that she must have a wonderful, supportive family. And she just said it.

    Never underestimate the power of a highly functional family unit who loves you for you and keeps you up when the world is upside down.

    God bless you Kechi….may you continue to soar and break boundaries.

    Wonderful, the more Kechi spoke, the less I defined her by her scars.

    i have watched her on different platform and am learning news things about her, her personality is so strong and beautiful that i cant stop the tears from my eyes. To have gone thru such ordeal and come out of it with this strong and transformed human being is simply just amazing. I wish her the very best in her life journey.
