You may have seen this already, but on the chance that even one person has missed it, we feel compelled to share it with you.
Lizzie Velasquez, 23, was born with a rare, undiagnosed medical condition that keeps her body from storing fat and building muscle. She’s also blind in her right eye. 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?”
When Lizzie was a teenager, she was labeled “The Worlds Ugliest Woman,” by online bullies. She used the negativity to turn it into confidence, and created her own definitions of beauty and happiness. Her attitude is contagious.
This may be one of the most inspirational talks we have ever heard.
