This acid attack victim will now walk the ramp at New York Fashion Week


In 2014, Reshma Qureshi, was left with painful scars on her body after Reshma's brother-in-law, along with his friends, poured concentrated sulphuric acid on her.

Two years later, life is looking up for her. The 19-year-old has been approached by FTL Moda, a fashion company in New York to walk the ramp at the New York Fashion Week.

Reshma will be seen in an independent show with an aim to end the stigma associated with individuals suffering from disfigurements like her.

Currently working for the NGO Make Love Not Scars, she has also been the face of the campaign #EndAcidSale, that aimed to end the open sale of acid in India.

Reshma became a popular face on the internet after her videos as a beauty vlogger went viral.

Watch her reaction on being informed about the fashion week:
