If you’re looking for an inspirational story today, you’ve come to the right place.  Katie Piper was a model and television presenter in England, who, in March 2008, became a victim of an acid attack organized by her short-term ex-boyfriend.  The attack left her blind in her left eye and permanently disfigured and scarred.  She had to wear a plastic face mask for two years in an attempt to reduce the scarring.  Katie chose to give up her anonymity by starring in a documentary about her experience.  She also created the Katie Piper Foundation, which aims to help other burn victims.

Katie Piper just starred in her own photo shoot for Reveal magazine for the first time since the attack.  Katie told Mail Online, “Before I was on the wrong path and was wrapped up in how I looked. Now I have a richer life. I never look back and think, ‘What if?’ My face is quirkier now. You don’t have to be perfect to be beautiful.'”
