Surviving an acid attack is one thing, surviving after surviving is another thing. How did you do it?
Special guest Monica Singh.
"Okay, so usually what I have noticed in people, they want to tag as a victim, because they want to see what you are. But then I also say that the victim has a “period” sign in front of it. But as a survivor, there’s a “comma” because being a survivor means we keep going. And then people going to say is like, “Oh can you imagine if this didn't happen to you? What would have happened I was like?” I mean, I didn’t imagine right now what will happen next in my future.How can I say what would what would have been? It might have been more normal."
