A girl who was so badly beaten by her ex-boyfriend she needed a new nose has regained her confidence after becoming a beauty queen.
Lacy Lund has turned her life around since the vicious attack by 22-year-old coward Dean Campbell, after having rhinoplasty to rebuild her face.
Lacy’s new look gave her so much confidence that she’s now a fully fledged beauty queen – and she hopes her story will help other domestic violence victims.
After recovering from surgery, she found the confidence to start rebuilding her life, and was approached by a model scout during a night out with friends.
‘Now, I want to share my story to help other vulnerable women to speak about domestic violence,’ she said.
‘Just talk to someone before it’s too late. I want to continue modelling but I also aspire to help other women one day with my story, I want them to find the confidence I have. I feel very lucky that I’m able to get up on stage and smile.’
Lacy’s ex Dean, last summer pleaded guilty to assault for actual bodily harm at Grimsby Magistrates’ Court.
All he was handed was a community order and a £250 fine. Shocking.
