Kanchana, 28  Colombo, Sri Lanka by Phil Borges

Kanchana, 28  Colombo, Sri Lanka

Kanchana graduated as an honor student from high school in her northern Sri Lankan village.  When she decided to move 150 miles away to pursue a nursing degree her boyfriend became enraged with jealousy.  A few months later while walking to class he jumped out at her on a crowded street and threw acid in her face.  Despite many surgeries, having to wear a mask, severe eye problems, Kanchana graduated at the top of her class.  Her plastic surgeon told me that like Kanchana most of her acid attack patients are beautiful women - it’s almost a curse.
