The University of St. Thomas in the United States has awarded a Masters degree to a young Nigerian woman named Kelechi Okwuchi who endured burns during a plane disaster.
One of the two survivors of the December 10, 2005, accident of Sosoliso Airlines Flight 1145 in Nigeria is Kelechi Okwuchi. 60 of her classmates from Nigeria’s Loyola Jesuit College perished in the plane tragedy, which claimed 107 lives overall.
Kechi was given a 30% chance of survival following the crash because she had third-degree burns on more than 65% of her body. She received rapid medical attention and therapy at Milpark Hospital in South Africa.
She later underwent more than a hundred reconstructive surgery before making a full recovery at Shriners Hospitals for Children in Galveston, Texas, in the United States.
Kechi completed her schooling in the US and earned her bachelor’s degree with first-class honors from the University of St. Thomas in Houston, Texas.
From the same University of St. Thomas in Texas, Kechi most recently earned her Masters in Business Administration.
She posted lovely images and videos from her graduation ceremony to her Instagram profile to celebrate her accomplishments.
