NEWS DESK: An aspiring model who suffered horrific facial burns in UK after allegedly being doused with acid on her 21st birthday has shared a new selfie showing her incredible recovery. She shared the picture on her Twitter timeline.
Resham Khan was with her cousin, Jameel Muhktar, when the pair was allegedly attacked with a corrosive substance as they drove through east London in June.
The brave student, who has opened up about her gruelling and painful recovery in a blog, posted her new Twitter profile on Saturday, four months after the incident.
She wrote: “Time to stop hiding.”
Hundreds of people have replied commenting on her beauty.
One wrote: “Nobody and nothing can take away ur beauty. Just love how down to earth and humble you are most of all how you live life on your own terms.”
Another said: “We all respect your bravery and dignity, you have come such a long way. Stay strong, you are an inspiration to us all.”
Ms Khan said she was with her cousin in Newham when a man approached their car and threw acid through the windows, leaving them both seriously injured.
Shortly after the June 21 attack, she shared pictures of herself with large dark scars on her body and peeling scabs across her face.
She has previously spoken of how she was “too petrified to walk to my local shop” in a harrowing blog post.
In another blog post she described the medical treatment she has undergone, including having her burns continually treated with a “body jet spray” and several skin grafts.
Police investigating the incident charged 24-year-old east Londoner John Tomlin with two counts of GBH.
He is due to stand trial at Southwark Crown Court on November 27.
