Seventeen-year old Shamsia’s face was disfigured in an acid attack a week ago. Some of the acid also entered her eyes. Her crime? She dared to go to school, albeit in a burqa that covered her from head to toe! But Shamsia has a message for those who tried to terrorise her and prevent her from going to school: “I will go to my school even if they kill me. If my enemies do this one hundred times, I’m still going to continue my studies.”
Bravo Shamsia!! You are the kind of inspiration the world needs.
