Strength of Survivors

by Sabrin

MSNBC published an inspiring report about two acid victims in Pakistan who have become beauticians to keep their independence.

“I’m independent now, I stand on my own two feet,” she says. “I have a job, I work, I earn. In fact, I’m living on my own … which isn’t an easy thing to do for a woman in Pakistan, for a lone woman to survive.”

These women show us how far strength can take you. I applaud not only these two women, but all you survivors out there who continue to be strong and accomplish all your dreams.
