How A Burn Victim Became An Online Beauty Inspiration And Star
Shalom Nchom, is a burn victim who is known as Shalom Blac to her thousands of YouTube fans.
She was severely injured and scarred when she was burned by hot oil when she was a child. Badly scarred, she used makeup as a way to protect herself from bullying.
Glamour Magazine has a great piece where Shalom describes what it is to look different, how her pain inspired her to help others.
Now, Shalom shares with others how to feel beautiful — whether wearing makeup or not.
Her transformation both physical and inner is nothing short of jaw-dropping.
CNN’s Great Big Story captures Shalom’s spirit so well!
