burn victim reaches for her dreams

Totally inspired by this story about 18-year-old Kiki Vo, who was badly burned in a house fire that killed her mother and scarred two of her sisters nine years ago in Vietnam: Burn victim, accepted into UC, 'inspires us all.'

With burns over 85 percent of her body, she has endured more than 25 surgeries and faces more painful procedures next month. Rather than let the fire consume her dream, she's worked even harder towards her goals, and was recently accepted into UC Berkeley.
