Car Crash Scars Won’t Kill My Modelling Dreams | SHAKE MY BEAUTY

SUBSCRIBE to Barcroft TV:

A TENACIOUS model has learnt to show-off her scars after a tragic car accident left her fearing for her future. When she was just 23 years old, Neli Zuma was fighting for her life in ICU with internal bleeding after her friend’s car span out of control and hit a wall. Neli, now 25, was left with a gaping hole in her stomach and doctors had no choice but to remove skin from her thigh and sew it to the open wound to prevent her bleeding out. Unfortunately, there was nothing they could do for her close friend who passed away two days later. Neli, who had just started out with her modelling career, was left with unusual scarring on her stomach and thigh and she had to use a colostomy bag for 10 months. Her body-confidence had hit an all-time low. But after months of trying to improve the way she saw herself, Neli from Durban, South Africa, decided it was time to show the world that she is no longer ashamed of her scars. To follow Neli’s story, click below:
