I survived an acid attack and had a law named after me

Outlook Inspirations nominee Natalia Ponce de Leon's life changed the day a man threw acid over her. It burned her face, arms, abdomen and one of her legs and Natalia says that at one stage she thought she looked like a monster. But she then started a campaign to ensure justice for other Colombian survivors. Photo credit: EPA/Mauricio Duenas Castaneda
