People Told Her “You Should Die.” But This Girl’s Courageous Response Has Inspired Millions.

inspiring girl telling her story

Lizzie Velasquez has become an inspiration to millions.  Born with an extremely rare disease (shared by only 2 other people on the planet), Velasquez cannot gain weight.  In her entire life she has never weighed more than 67 lbs.


The result is that she looks drastically different than everyone.  She has been called “the ugliest woman in the world” and endured torturous bullying.  But she has taken that criticism and turned it into the ultimate positive.


Her message is simple and powerful: “stay true to yourself” and live your life to help others.  Share this to spread her love to your friends!
