Dieynaba was only three...

This is the face of a warrior. Dieynaba was only three when she stumbled and fell into a pot of hot cooking oil. She was left with burns to her face and arm, as well as deformed fingers on her left hand. She’ll soon have reconstructive surgery to release the burn contracture on her arm, as well as restore some function to her fingers. 

This young lady has been through a lot, and has come out the other side with a steely determination and inner strength. One cannot help but admire.
