While petting her cousin’s 8-year-old blue nose pit bull, Diesel, whom she thought was friendly, Khoury was suddenly attacked in the kitchen. She remained calm and went to the hospital promptly. Unfortunately, surgeons couldn’t fully repair her injured upper lip.

She mentioned pulling out her phone just to check her appearance, and claimed she ‘didn’t know’ her phone took a picture until later. “I knew it was bad but I didn’t know how bad it was,” she said. “It’s crazy because this photo has helped my doctor tremendously because he was able to see the original bite marks from the attack and kind of map out what happened.”

She shared her journey of mental and physical recovery online.

She has been very open and transparent about her recovery journey, sharing her experiences, thoughts, and feelings with the public on Instagram. In one post, she wrote, “When I was attacked, it was so hard to see what the future held for me.” She explained how thankful she was for people who constantly reminded her to trust the process.

“The first time seeing my face after the surgery was scary,” she said, “But I was like, ‘Okay, time to love this new version of myself for now.'”

She shatters the facade of perfection on Instagram.

As a skateboarder, she has consistently been open about both the positive and challenging parts of her experiences, even showcasing falls and setbacks.

It’s impossible not to be inspired by resilient individuals who, instead of being defeated by hardships, emerge even stronger. Another uplifting tale is that of Katie Piper, who faced an acid attack orchestrated by her ex-boyfriend.
