She is being called the ugliest woman in the world, but really, I think she is one of the most beautiful women in the world. Meet 26 year old Lizzie Velasquez. Her story is inspiring millions of people around the world. If her story doesn’t inspire you, then you are probably not really human! Read on…
The UGLIEST WOMAN In The World
Lizzie weighs just around 60 pounds and is blind in one eye due to an extremely rare combination of conditions which do not allow her to gain weight, no matter what she eats.
When Lizzie was just 17, a video went viral on YouTube dubbing her as the ugliest woman in the world. While this would be absolutely devastating to most, and was devastating to Lizzie too at the time, it was actually a huge blessing in disguise.
In an interview with People Magazine she said; “That video changed everything and it has given me the platform that I have now to be the voice for anyone who’s ever been bullied — and not just myself.”
Lizzie is now a motivational speaker who has been seen by many millions of people. She speaks about bullying and about self confidence. Here is a TedTalk she gave back in 2013.
