Inspiring Life Lessons From Lizzie Velasquez

Title: Inspiring Life Lessons From Lizzie Velasquez

Lizzie Velasquez has a pretty recognizable face. Maybe you’ve seen her viral TedTalks, like the one where she explains why she chooses to be happy or the one where she asks how you define yourself. Maybe you’ve read one of her books—her third will be published later this year. Or maybe you’re one of the thousands of people who subscribe to her YouTube channel or follow her on Instagram.

The 25-year-old was born with a very rare (as in, only two other people in the entire world have it) syndrome that is still undiagnosed, but which prevents her from gaining weight. A few years ago, a different viral video—one that called her “The Ugliest Woman in the World”—surfaced online.

But Lizzie didn’t let it bring her down. She used that video as an opportunity to tell her story, which has spread and earned celebrity endorsements from the likes of Sara Bareilles, Ariana Grande, and Katie Couric.
