Two years ago, seventeen-year-old Indian model Reshma Qureshi doused with acid by her brother. Beauty has lost an eye and part of his face will remain permanently disfigured with ugly scars. It seemed that this girls modelling career was finished, but no. This year the nineteen year old Reshma made a splash at fashion Week, which started in new York.
Qureshi opened the fashion event by appearing on the catwalk in outfits by Indian designer Archana Kochhar. She was impossible to distinguish from among the other models, but the girl herself claims not to have come here for the sensational – she just wants to draw attention to the availability of acid in India.
The life of Reshma very abruptly changed after the disaster. Now she wants to change the situation in Asian countries where many are experiencing the same problems as her. Now the model helps the victims of the attacks. It records video, which proves that life does not stop and that many do not become disabled, and can achieve a lot in life.
