Shalom Nchom has severe burn marks over her face, hands and shoulders. She had an accident with frying oil when she was just 9 years old.
She lost most of her hair in this accident and this made her a victim of bullying in her school.
“I was stared at by kids and older people whenever I stepped out.I felt like a living statue that people came to see. It pushed me to be rude towards anyone who stared at me. I cursed people out and cried on many occasions.”
Well, unlike others, she managed to cope with this and is now a beauty blogger and goes by the name ‘Shalom Blac’ on YouTube.
She thinks that she will become a live example for every other victim. According to her, this profession gives her a chance to share her passion with others who are going through the same situation!
Through her videos she teaches people different techniques of makeup. Her hands definitely have magic.
This is how she has transformed her life. Generally people going through such situations think that their life has come to an end. But Shalom is actually teaching others to live with what they have.
She hopes that people will understand that beauty is not how well you know to apply makeup or how good your physical appearance is! Rather beauty is what you feel about yourself. She wants people to love themselves and feel good about the lives they have.
