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

Posted by Dhruba Shrestha April 6, 2018 :
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.

Guide of the month: January 2018

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
