I thought I’d start a thread to find out who inspires you in life or stories of women who have touched your heart and inspired you. With all the Kim Kardashian crap (why she is famous ill never know) thrown in our faces and jersey shore, there seems to be a lack of truely inspirational women in the media spotlight of late.
I am inspired by Katie Piper. She is a young women who in 2008 had acid thrown in her face by her psycho ex. This girl was stunning, I mean just drop dead gorgeous before the attack. She went on to have over 40 operations on her face alone. He ex also raped her, she could have chosen to hide away but he spoke out about what happened to her and started the Katie Piper foundation for people with burns and disfigurements. She is a major philanthropist and has been so open about her struggle. I just think she is wonderful. She has shown humility and true bravery through her struggle. When I read she had met someone and was having a baby I was so happy I cried! (I am a major sook)
So who inspires you? It could be anyone at all. I love hearing these kinds of things 🙂
