What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger. You couldn’t agree more with this, when you meet Laxmi, a very special woman who is a true embodiment of perseverance, strength, hope and beauty. Her story is about overcoming all odds with true grit, and inspire thousands of women across the globe to believe in themselves, and more importantly believe that each one of them is a symbol of strength and beauty.
We are proud to announce Laxmi as the brand ambassador for Pyore.
She is the mother of a beautiful baby girl and wife of a very lucky man. At the age of 15, in April of 2005 Laxmi’s life changed forever, when she was attacked by a man, who threw a corrosive chemical on her face, only because she did not want to marry him. But Laxmi was not going to let this incident take her down, instead she has now become a role model for several other women who have gone through the same ordeal in their lives. Laxmi is a social activist with the Stop Acid Attacks campaign and is the voice of Acid Attack survivors around the world. She was chosen as the NDTV Indian of the Year and received the 2014 International Women of Courage award by the US First Lady Michelle Obama.
She has been instrumental in curbing the sale of acid in India and widely known for her work to rehabilitate the survivors of acid attacks through her foundation.
