Landjina is a burn survivor and entrepreneur who created her own clothing brand, “Burn Survivor On the Rise”. The brand is all about reminding burn survivors that their scars are a reminder of what they went through and that they are alive for a reason, so it is time to live life at its fullest.
Landjina was 7 years old, she was getting ready to go to school in her home in Haiti when her dress got caught in a kerosene lamp and lit up. One of the most difficult parts of her recovery was accepting that her scars do not make her worthless.
Over time, Landjina learned to love and accept herself. One way she practices self-confidence is by not covering her scars. She feels empowered by this as it serves as a reminder that she is strong every single day.
We are inspired by Landjina’s self-confidence and mission to empower other burn survivors!
