Resham Khan, an aspiring model and acid attack survivor, who had displayed great strength earlier this year by posting pictures of herself on social media has done the same yet again. Khan, who was attacked along with her cousin on June 21 on her birthday in east London, recently put up pictures of herself looking absolutely lovely and wrote, “Time to stop hiding” as the caption. The picture was posted on October 29 and already has more than 1800 likes at the time of writing.
She had, in the past, shared pictures of herself during Eid and had taken to her blog Resham.Online to share details about the process of recovery. Those pictures, Khan had maintained were not photos of her exact transformation as she had to sit through a session of full face make-up that included an extra layer of foundation or two and a lot of concealer to cover the “raised and pink areas”. Even this time, she added she has “edited” the picture. But that takes away nothing from her daunting courage and much like in the past, Khan has received tremendous support from people on social media. While one user wrote, “GOD!! YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!! <3 <3 DONT EVER HIDE”, another wrote “your beautiful in every way”.

Khan was attacked when her car has halted at a traffic stop. With severe injuries to her face and shoulders, she suffered from excruciating pain and critical scars. After the traumatic incident, Khan had written a blog post to voice her thoughts. Narrating her incident, she had written, “I have a few pink coloured scars, some white ones which I’m hoping will turn brown, and a skin graph that takes up my right shoulder and the top of my back. My mouth doesn’t open as it should and yawning feels tight. But as long as the colour settles (which it really is doing!), my eye is operated on (consultation in two weeks), and I keep treating the scars, I’m hoping I’ll be back to the old me soon.”
