Inspirational Monica Singh: Acid Attack Victim To New York Fashionista

AN INDIAN student has realised her dreams of becoming a New York fashionista - despite being the victim of a horrific acid attack. Monica Singh, 28, had been top of her class when a jilted admirer organised for an entire bucket of acid to be thrown on her. The corrosive liquid burned through all seven layers of her skin and nearly killed her. But spurred on by her father - who spent his life savings on 46 corrective surgeries over the last 10 years - she has battled back to hit her goals. Last year she was accepted into the prestigious Parsons The New School For Design in Manhattan - where alumni include fashion icons like Tom Ford and Anna Sui. She now has hopes to become a famous fashion designer herself.
