Lizzie Velasquez is one of only three people on Earth born with an unusual genetic ailment that prevents her from gaining any weight.

She has never weighed over 62 pounds in her life, and in addition, Velasquez was also born sightless in her right eye.

She discovered a video of herself on YouTube labeled “The World’s Ugliest Woman” prior to her junior year of high school.

Unfortunately, the video had already received four million hits on the website.

Velasquez’s parents attempted to get the YouTube video taken off, but the unidentified figure who posted it professed he would never remove it.

Instead of suffering from anger, hopelessness and depression, Velasquez took a different approach to her attitude.

After educating some high school freshmen about her rare disorder, she challenged the issue of bullying face-to-face and generated a schedule of dialogue arrangements.

As a result, Velasquez appeared on multiple television programs which allowed her to produce three books, including “Be Beautiful, Be You.”
