Before she became a social media star, Brooklinn Khoury was making her way in the world as a skateboarder. She was dating model Chloe Lukasiak, and she had her eyes set on filming her first television commercial. But everything changed when a pit bull tore off her upper lip and nose in November 2020.
How Skateboarder Brooklinn Khoury Changed Her Life After Dog Attack
Influencer and skater Brooklinn Khoury knew she was destined for great things when she began skating at age 9. She was born in Southern California, US, and moved to Los Angeles at the age of 14. Her mother is from Lebanon and her father is from the Philippines.
She is currently a model, influencer, and entrepreneur who has appeared on numerous popular TV shows and campaigns. She is known for her incredible skills as a skateboarder, and she has collaborated with numerous brands, including Nike Women’s Skate Project, Vogue’s “Skate” magazine, and Vans.
Her skateboarding career has taken her to various countries around the world, and she is now a renowned skateboarder. She has been featured in countless skateboarding competitions and has a huge fan base on Instagram.
The 23-year-old is now sharing photos of her progress as she recovers from a dog attack that left her without a lip and nose. She has undergone several reconstructive surgeries and is thriving in her new life, and she’s been candid about it all on social media.
She has shared a series of progression photos on her Instagram account, showing how much she’s improved and how she’s become stronger. She’s also been very candid about her fears and how she still worries that the injuries will affect her career.
Brooklinn has been open about her recovery, and she is incredibly grateful to be alive. She believes the attack made her more strong, and she is thankful for how she was able to overcome her injuries and rebuild her life.
After the dog attack, she began to reevaluate her personal life and her relationship with social media. She also re-evaluated her personal brand and how it correlated with traditional beauty standards.
Before her dog attack, she had a lot of followers and was preparing to film her first commercial. But she felt “super insecure” about taking a photo of herself with a zit on her upper lip, so she clipped it out.
Shortly after that, her cousin’s pitbull attacked her, tearing off her lip and parts of her nose.
The incident happened while she was visiting her cousin’s house in Gilbert, Arizona. She and her cousin were spending time with their dog, Diesel, and she was petting it when the animal lunged at her.
As a result of the dog attack, Brooklinn lost her lip and had to undergo seven surgeries. The pro skater is currently undergoing her last surgery, and she hopes it will be the one that gives her her smile back.
Brooklinn is a beautiful and inspiring woman, and her journey has taught her to love herself more than ever before. She has been a big supporter of other people who have gone through similar experiences and has been encouraging her followers to be open about their challenges as well.
