New York: Sending out a powerful message of courage, acid attack survivor Reshma Qureshi walked the runway on Thursday at the New York Fashion Week.
The 19-year-old Qureshi modelled for designer Archana Kochhar’s show in a lovely long ivory dress with colourful embroidery.
“I never thought in my wildest dreams that something like this would happen to me,” said an excited Qureshi after the show.
Reshma had suffered severe burns in 2014 when her brother-in-law and his friends threw acid on her face. She lost her left eye and was left with a deeply scarred face after the attack.
