In a time when beauty is defined by supermodels, success is defined by wealth, and fame is deified by how many followers you have on social media, Lizzie Velasquez asks the question how do you define yourself? Once labeled, «The Worlds Ugliest Woman,» Lizzie decided to turn things around and create her own definitions of what she defines as beauty and happiness.
When Lizzie was 4 years old she became half-blind onto the right eye and the left one also functions not perfectly. Moreover her immune system is way too weak.
Elizabeth Ann «Lizzie» Velásquez is an American motivational speaker and Author. She was born with a rare congenital disease which, among other symptoms, prevents her from accumulating body fat. Lizzie has also been diagnosed with Marfan syndrome by the Baylor College of Medicine. She never weighed more than 30 kg. Her conditions resulted in relentless bullying during her childhood and early youth and thus ultimately inspiring her to take up motivational speaking. Over time, Lizzie has gained many supporters by speaking out against bullying.
