Skolopad is embracing her body – scars and all

The entertainer took to Instagram this week to share pictures of her scars from a horrific car accident.

Skolopad was involved in a head-on-collision in September that left a 61-year-old man dead.

The 34-year-old was rushed to hospital and admitted to ICU after the crash.

“My fiancé has come to see me. He joked that this accident has scarred my beautiful legs because I have an open wound on my leg,” she told Drum magazine shortly after the incident.

Skolopad has since been released from hospital and is well on her way to a full recovery

But the scars on her body are a constant reminder of that fateful day. Instead of hiding them, she has embraced them.  

“Scars are there to tell the story and define my strength,” she captioned a picture on Instagram.

The image shows Skolopad, who is completely naked, sitting on a red cloth with her back to the camera – her scar on full display.

But Skolopad has not always been confident about her scars.

“It’s hard to look at the wounds and the scars they will provide. I am afraid that they may affect my confidence in the future but for now I am just grateful to be alive and to be healing. I take it one day at a time,” she told TshisaLive in an interview after her crash.

Since then the entertainer has not been shy about showing off her scars.

“God is good,” she captioned this picture of herself wearing a short denim dress.
