I was born on August the 8th 1980, in Bogota – Colombia.
I was reborn from the ashes after being victim of an atrocious attack with sulfuric acid the past 27th of March, 2014. I was assaulted with a liter of acid that destroyed and burned my face, my stomach and my limbs. Since my rebirth, every day has been of revelations for me, about my strength and my family´s strength, about the power of the mind and the endurance of my body. About the power of love and the power of acid, a substance unknown to many, but today because of my story, millions of people know about its uses and the unfortunate power of destruction in the body and the mind of a person. On April the 27th, 2015 I fulfilled one of my biggest dreams: create the Natalia Ponce de Leon Foundation, formed to provide advice, psychological and legal support to people attacked with acid, in order to help them have a better quality of life and contribute to their reintegration into their work, social and family environment regardless of their social, religious or race condition.
This is not my fight is our fight, because tomorrow this may be the story of your son or your daughter.
Natalia Ponce de León
