When you think all hope is lost, life still put smiles on your face. This is true for 21 year old acid victim Naomi Oni, who was disfigured for life when an unknown person wearing a niqab threw acid in her face as she walked home from work on Sunday December 30th 2012 in Lodge Avenue Dagenham, east London, has had her eyebrows restored after it was burnt off in the horrific attack.

The acid burned off the skin on her face and scalp and left her temporarily blinded. She lost her eyelids, eyebrows and some of her hair in the assault. Fortunately doctors have been able to rebuild her features, including taking skin from the back of her ear to make new eyelids for her and now new eyebrows.
