Good News: Burn Victim Covers Women’s Weekly

Women’s magazines are typically covered by Hollywood starlets or in-demand supermodels. Although Turia Pitt is neither, her cover of Australia’s Women’s Weeklymakes for one seriously inspirational example against the status quo. Pitt is a 26-year-old burn victim who suffered burns to 65 percent of her body three years ago when she was caught in a brushfire while running an ultra-marathon in Australia. She underwent 100 surgeries and spent more than 864 days in the hospital fighting for her life. Today, the mining engineer is a motivational speaker and author. She is also a member of Women’s Weekly judging panel for the annual Women of the Future scholarship awards. After Pitt was photographed as part of the panel, Women’s Weekly editor decided to put her on the cover. Click here to see her stunning cover photo!
