One of the most stand out couples this season on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way are Princeton, NJ native Ariela Weinberg and her boyfriend Biniyam Shibre. At the beginning of the season, Ariela was 7 months pregnant with Biniyam’s baby. She was ready to give up modern conveniences to move to Ethiopia so they could raise their child together.
It seems as though the move to Ethiopia isn’t her first adventure, but rather another part of an already interesting story. We don’t know too much more about her pre-reality TV life, but viewers noticed some obvious scars from her past.
While seeing Ariela in a sleeveless dress last week, fans started to notice several horizontal scars on her arms that looked like they had been self-inflicted. Starcasm shared a screenshot of Ariela’s Instagram Story where she discussed the scars on her arm. She wrote, “It has come to my attention that people are interested to know about the scars on my arms. I want to say that yes they are self-inflicted”.
She explained, “I had a tumultuous adolescence as so many others have had. I started questioning the world and my life from a young age. I could not find peace with myself nor the world I was living in. And this was my answer at the time”.

Ariela didn’t cite any specific examples of her struggles in her post. However, she did say, “I will make a video elaborating on it and how I came to change. But this is the truth of my life and I am not ashamed”.
Hopefully, Ariela’s story of overcoming her trauma and finding healthy coping methods will reach any struggling viewers experiencing similar issues. She concluded her post with “Thanks to all those who reached out to support me and those who were brave enough to share their own stories”.

It’s good to know she has moved on from her past, and will hopefully be able to help others in a similar situation through the 90 Day Fiance platform.
