Lizzie Velasquez is a shining star of inspiration. She was born with a medical condition where she doesn’t produce fat on her body. Therefore she looks very gaunt and thin. Her different appearance results in many unpleasant stares and reactions from strangers. Lizzie notices the stares and doesn’t care for the response but just keeps her head up high and keeps going. She sometimes wonders if she should just talk to these people so that they can get to know her better.
Lizzie pushes through it all and makes the most of her life. She is a motivational speaker and has a book that just came out named Be Beautiful, Be You. Amazing woman!!
