Teenager who suffered 95 per cent burns now wants to be a model

A teenager with 95 percent burns covering his body once felt like a "monster" but is now chasing his modelling dreams.

At four-years-old, Johnny Quinn, nearly died in a fire at his home and was saved when his older sister Leah pulled him out of the blaze.

Johnny, now 18, struggled to accept his scars for a long time, including experiencing anorexia as a young teen, but he is now embracing his scars.

The teenager from Millington, Tennessee, who has had over 80 reconstructive surgeries, is now pursuing his dreams of modelling so that he can inspire others to accept their unique scars.
