On the 6th of July 2020 my life changed😭😭 completely, that day I burned inside the house while I was asleep and I was shocked when I felt the heat in my body when I saw the whole house was burning.
My whole back was on fire and I couldn't see where the door was facing, I was in the dark and I was covered with smoke and I shouted at my neighbor crying and he couldn't hear me.
They thought I was not inside.
I tried to search the side where the door was facing, I managed to reach and open it then went out.
I was on fire and I fell down, they poured water on me.
I was taken to Motherwell health Center where doctors said I had a severe burn (3rd degree burns) and was transferred to Dora Nginza hospital.
I was taken to the burns unit ICU where I stayed for 3 months.
I was crying all day and I was wondering why God chose me, it made me angry and I hated myself and I came back, but it wasn't easy when I came back.
I was surrounded by friends who I thought they loved me but they made fun of me.
I used to cover my face with a face mask with the fear of being laughed at. When I saw a crowd of people I used to turn around
I was inspired by another Burn Survivor of my age called Titus Gobodo and I learned from him that I should not be ashamed of my scars, I won't change and I will always be like this.
I started to accept myself and I loved myself. I told myself that I was beautiful and I love myself the way I am
I am a hero and strong.
