Nigerian-American singer, Kechi Okwuchi, is now able to wear earrings. The airplane crash survivor took to her Instagram page to share her journey to being able to now wear earrings in a lengthy caption.
According to the America’s Got Talent finalist, she could no longer wear earrings and braids after the crash occurred.
In her words:
“Speaking of gratitude, let me tell y’all a story. Two things I’ve missed since the accident are doing braids and wearing earrings. I don’t talk about it but my mom knows this. Sometime late last year, mommy came into my room all excited about a package that had finally arrived-little gold hoops that gently hook around the ear. We tried many things with no success cos I don’t have ear lobes so if this worked, it would be a big deal. Bruh. We put them on me and they 👏🏽 stayed 👏🏽 on 👏🏽 like what?! Then we found out we could hook longer earrings unto them too!! I couldn’t believe it.
Mommy doesn’t know this but I cried that day after she left my room. She didn’t tell me she was still looking for a way for me to wear earrings. She just knew it’d make me happy. I just wanna say to my sweet & incredible mom @ijeduruokwuchi (founder of @gateaux.d.ije bakery😉) for not stopping until she found a way for me to wear earrings again: thank you and I love you so so much🥲❤️❤️❤️❤️ I AM WEARING EARRINGS GUYS😭🥰 I’ll be posting about this all week so sorry in advance!”
