Finally, someone who deserves to be on the cover of a magazine by virtue of character – not celebrity. Australian Women’s Weekly magazine is setting the standard for what true human beauty is by featuring burns survivor, Turia Pitt, an incredible and inspiring woman, on the cover of their magazine.

Turia, a mining engineer currently studying a masters degree, suffered burns to 65% of her body when she was trapped in a bushfire during a 100km ultra-marathon in Western Australia in September 2011. She was given little chance of survival by several doctors. She is now a motivational speaker and published author. In the last six months she has also biked from Sydney to Uluru, swum a 20km race in Lake Argyle in WA, and walked the Great Wall of China. The activities raised funds for Interplast, a charity that provides free reconstructive surgery to people in developing countries.

The AWW has said they chose Turia, pictured below with her partner Michael Hoskin, for the cover, “because she is quite simply one of the most impressive women you will ever hope to meet”.

Turia told the AWW that being on the cover was an honor. “For me, it sends the message that confidence equals beauty.”
