Sosoliso Plane Crash Survivor Graduates With A First Class Degree

Beautiful Kechi Okwuchi is the only survivor of the Sosoliso plane crash that occurred in December 2005, Port Harcourt. 

Kechi's life changed forever in 2005 when she just 16. She and 60 other schoolmates from Loyola Jesuit College(one of the best private secondary schools in Nigeria), a boarding high school in Abuja, boarded a Sosoliso plane headed to Port Harcourt for the Christmas holiday...but 20 minutes to landing, something went terrible wrong. The plane crashed and Kechi lost all her friends. She survived but was badly burnt. But that hasn't stopped her from living.. Port Harcourt Airport had only one fire truck and no ambulances. She was the only student and person that survived.

The plane crash also claimed the life of well liked Nigerian pastor, Pastor Bimbo Odukoya. 

Kechi Okwuchi graduated with a First Class from the University of St Thomas, Houston Texas on May 16th 2015. Not only that but she was also inducted into 6 academic honor societies and was the most Outstanding student for her major in Economics. She was also chosen to give the commencement address to the class of 2015 at her school. 

Congratulations, Kechi!! The Sky is your limit!

  1. Nothing can crushed a determined soul - instead of manning and groaning about her situation, she did something very remarkable and I'm inspired!

  2. She is a girl destined for greatness!
