'Throughout my childhood and teen years I had constant vivid dreams of this ancient queen. 'Aged 23 I underwent psychoanalysis with a counsellor. Slowly I began to realise that I was having these dreams because I am a reincarnation of Nefertiti." Um, okay, I guess. Not sure why the counselor didn't say "Even if you were Nefertiti in a former life, that's not who you are now, so maybe it's not really worth risking your life 51 times and spending all your money on looking like her"? Of course, there are those who will argue that it's Ms. Namiti's "choice" to do this. But don't we as a society decide some choices are just too self-destructive to be unregulated? Cigarettes come with regressive taxes and big warnings. Most narcotic substances are illegal or at least highly regulated. And what about the costs- financial and health wise- to going under the knife 51 times? Let's face it: heroin addiction would have been less costly and possibly less risky, especially if drugs were legal and therefore the content of the product somewhat controlled. Not only that, but think of all the recovery time and lost productivity from 51 cosmetic procedures. But alas. The cosmetic surgeons are much better at selling what they do as "medicine" and "empowering women" than the heroin dealers. And gods only know how happy looking like Nefertiti makes Ms. Namiti.
"I am sure some people will disapprove of me having so many operations but I believe my look is ageless and timeless. Seeing myself looking so much younger makes me feel young and energetic."
