How a victim becomes a heroin

Laxmi Agarwal is a twenty-six-year-old woman living in India. 
What's her story ? 
When she was only fifteen, a thrity-two-year-old man called Guddu proposed to her. However , Laxmi refused his romantical advances, making the man spiteful.
After the rejection, xith the help of two other people, Guddu, threw acid at her, destroying all of her facial features.
During several years , she went through a big amount of surgeries in order to make her look presesntable.
What makes her a heroin ?
Instead of hiding and having a remorseful life, she decided to fight and lead her life the way she wanted to and she had ever wanted to.
That's why, Laxmi joined the association «  Stop Acid Attacks » and has become one of the most effective activists in the organisation.
In 2015, thaks to her help and investissment, « Stop Acid Attacks » won the E-NGO award of year 2015 in the « Best Use of Social Media » category. Which means that most of her actions concerning the rehabilitaion of acid survivors and the approval by the government of laws involving acid uses, are known in the entire country because of her ability of spreading information.
To put in a nutshell, her great deeds improved some people's life, preventing them from committing suicide.
Laxmi Argawal is an extraordinary person, worth being the hero of 2015.
