Acid attack victim or survivor is a tag used for most of the people who go through the brutal attack.

A vast majority of these victims are women, and a majority of such attacks take place in South Asia. India and its neighboring countries having the highest number of acid attack incidents in the world. Laxmi, once known as the acid attack survivor, is now known as just Laxmi, who is a mother, a symbol of courage, hope, and love for life. She is a motivational speaker and a messenger for millions of social voices. She was 15 when she was attacked by her stalker with acid. He thought he will kill her dreams. Little did he know that she will bounce back and will strike a chord deep within people. As Laxmi says "Usne acid mere chehre par daala hai, sapnon par nahin" (He threw acid on my face, not on my dreams). Laxmi never stopped dreaming. She never gave up. Today, she is a synonym of courage and beauty on the globe. Laxmi received 2014 International Women of Courage award by US First Lady Michelle Obama.

Now She is the face of several brands. To name few; NIMAI’s new ‘Promise’ band (a luxury fashion brand with a soul), Viva N Diva (a clothing brand). She has challenged the stereotype by becoming the face of a fashion brand even after undergone several reconstructive surgeries. Despite the pain and trauma the regular course of her life remained the same as God had planned and her will and determination became more strong with a few scars on the soul asking herself, "why me?", she silently answers them all saying keep going, come what may!!!!
