Have your say

While I’m being a sentimental so-and-so, I thought I would mention another incredible woman who has made a great impression on me this week – Katie Piper.

I tuned in to watch the TV series Katie: My Beautiful Friends and was saddened by some of the stories of people living with disfigurements. Not saddened in a pitying kind of way, but sad about what these people had to deal with when faced with the public. Some of the stories of psychological and physical bullying were horrendous.

I think what Katie is trying to do, despite suffering a severe disfigurement herself as result of an acid attack, is incredible.

For her quest to change people’s perception about what beauty really is. I applaud her.
