Kechi Okwuchi

A survivor of the 2005 Sosoliso Airlines plane crash Kechi Okwuchi has bagged a master of business administration degree from the University of St. Thomas in Houston, Texas, United States.

The excited Okwuchi posted a video from the graduation ceremony on Instagram on Sunday.

“Kechi Okwuchi, MBA. Officially,” she said.

The 33-year-old’s family and friends were in attendance and did not fail in cheering her on.

Okwuchi made special mention of her “cheerleaders” Ije-Duru Okwuchi, Sandra, and Tara Okwuchi in her Instagram post.

She wrote, “My 3 cheerleaders @ijeduruokwuchi @sandii_love and @tara_okwuchi shouted the shout of 20 people🤣👊🏽 Love y’all so much. And thank you @stthomashouston for everything.”

Okwuchi was dressed in Nigerian fabrics for her convocation ceremony. She revealed in the video posted that one of her shoes got damaged during the ceremony but she mended it for temporary use after getting a red tape from a member of the university’s staff.

Okwuchi’s friend Sandra hosted her and others to a dinner to celebrate the latest achievement.

It was first revealed last October that Okwuchi would soon get her MBA.

Ije-Duru mentioned it on Twitter while celebrating Okwuchi’s 33rd birthday.

“My extraordinary Kechi! Singer, published author, recording artist, motivational speaker, burn survivor and advocate, bullying prevention advocate, soon to be an MBA graduate ……I could go on and on. So blessed to have birthed you❤️Happy Birthday!” She wrote.

Okwuchi is one of only two survivors in the Sosoliso Airlines Flight 1145 that crashed on December 10, 2005.

The plane, which took off from Abuja, crash-landed at the Port Harcourt International Airport, killing 108 passengers. Seven persons initially survived, five of them later died as a result of injuries from the crash.
