Since her horrific car accident on 11 August 2018, she has always been driven around by drivers. Now, she has gained confidence and overcame her fear of being behind the wheel.

Taking to Instagram, Sbahle shared how she is now fully confident to be behind the wheel, but she has got to be amid her trainer. The IG post was inspired by an issue posed by a lover , who asked her if she isn’t scared of driving a car again following her accident in 2018.

She said although people round her were concerned and against her being behind the wheel, because she loves cars she couldn’t resist. Sbahle revealed that she actually started driving a year after the accident but was careful to not post about it on social media because she was scared of being judged by people.

“I started driving a year later after my car accident, that car was written off and therefore the sadness of that was all I addressed including my long recovery. Everyone was against me driving which is understandable but i really like cars and that i didn’t post about it because I feared that i might be judged.

For the longest time until early 2020, my only fear was being driven by another driver but I’ve completely overcame that awkward fear of my safety. to beat that trauma in 2018 i made a decision to require the danger of driving myself whilst i used to be still wheel-chaired with my fixation metals on my right foot.”
