Lizzie Velasquez was born with a rare genetic defect. This does not allow her to form normal muscle and fat tissue like most of us. Consequently she weighs only 60 pounds. Her condition is so rare that only two other people in the world have it.
At one point in her school she was dubbed as the “world’s ugliest woman”. There are web sites that have been dedicated to make fun of her. In spite of all the pain and grief this condition has caused her, Lizzie has come to accept and embrace it. She shows that it is possible to rise above pettiness and hostility. Her example shows us that no matter what the challenges, they can be overcome. Lizzie is now a published author and a motivational speaker. By her everyday actions of kindness and her indomitable spirit, she shows us that she indeed is very beautiful. If you also think Lizzie is beautiful please like and share, and let the message of her story spread.
