Acid Attack Survivor Reshma Qureshi Said Walking The NYFW Runway Would Empower Others Like Her
"I don't want the world to look at acid attack survivors differently."
19-year-old model Reshma Qureshi, who survived an acid attack in 2014, sashayed down the runway at the New York Fashion Week on Thursday.
She walked for Archana Kochhar's collection.

And this is the takeaway she wants you to have.
