The ‘10 year challenge’ is the hot topic on social media, and netizens, including celebrities, have been posting ‘before and after’ pictures, to showcase their transformation in the last 10 years. While the trend has generally been light-hearted as social media users have been expressing surprise at the transformation in the person or thing and laughing at the flurry of memes that have surfaced. However, the challenge has helped actress and Yuvraj Singh’s wife Hazel Keech open up on her battle with depression, bulimia and self-esteem issues and how she overcame all of it to be happier, healthier and at peace with herself over the course of 10 years.
The ‘Bodyguard’ actress in an Instagram post, shared a collage of pictures, when she was 22 with her present picture to show ‘how far’ she’s come. She wrote that ten years ago, she was fighting depression, and bulimia caused her to starve herself.
Hazel also revealed that she dyed her hair black and kept it for long to 'fit in' and ‘please everyone.’ The actress shared that she was ‘hiding the pain with a smile and joke’ so that no one knew what she was going through.
She then spoke about the transformation in herself, as now she’s able to confidently talk about what she went through and mustered the courage to cut her hair. Hazel added that today she doesn’t bother about what people think of her and doesn’t try to ‘fit in’ anymore.
The actress revealed feeling ‘happier, healthier and more at peace’ with herself than what she would’ve imagined to be. With ‘Wahooo’, she called it a ‘personal celebration’ and concluded by thanking the person who had started the '10 year challenge.'
