In a time when beauty is defined by supermodels, success is defined by wealth, and fame is defined by how many followers you have on social media, Lizzie Velasquez asks the question–how do you define yourself?
Born with an extremely rare medical condition which makes her unable to gain any weight, Lizzie endured years of bullying as a child and for years she believed she was defined by her experience and how she looked. Called a monster and told to kill herself, she realised even though things are hard, she cannot let this define who she is, and that her life is in her hands to shape and mould.
Once labeled, ‘The World’s Ugliest Woman,’ Lizzie decided to turn things around.
Use that negativity that you have in your life to make yourself better, because I guarantee you will win.
Today she is the author of three books, is an international motivational speaker and has realised her dream of obtaining a degree.
