This month marks 10 years since I was involved in a car accident in Mwea and had to be air lifted to Nairobi for surgery. I got 19 stitches down my left eye, and endured bouts of pain and physiotherapy over the years.

The former radio presenter goes on to add that the accident left her with back complications that saw her get surgery last year.

Eventually complications from that accident resulted in back surgery last year, and being on the move now, is not something I take for granted.

How she dealt with the scars and pain

Just like any other human being there are times Sheila Mwanyigha felt the need of hiding her scars. She however learnt to embrace them and move on with life.

It’s tempting to hide our scars as they remind us of the pain we have gone through, and remind us that we don’t look or feel the same anymore. But scars are also a reminder of strength. That we got through the tough times. We were not made to look or feel the same forever. That we are still alive, and because of that, can be even better and greater than before. I’m wearing my scars. Wear yours too! ??????#scarredbeautiful
