Aisha, the 19 year old girl from Afghanistan, whose nose was sliced off by Taliban, has showed her new nose in Los Angeles. Aisha received an Enduring Heart Award in Los Angeles. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's wife Maria Shriver presented the award to Aisha.

Aisha's father handed her over to a Taliban fighter as a way to repay his debt. Aisha's new family abused her and forced her to sleep in stable with animals. When she tried to escape, the family caught her and sliced her nose and ears. Later she was taken to an Americal Medical facility. In August, 2010, she was flown to US by Grossman Burn Foundation and stayed with an American family. She got her prosthetic nose at the West Hills Hospital.
