When she was in high school, Lizzie Velasquez was dubbed “The World’s Ugliest Woman” in an 8-second-long YouTube video. Born with a medical condition so rare that just two other people in the world are thought to have it, Velasquez has no adipose tissue and cannot create muscle, store energy, or gain weight. She has zero percent body fat and weighs just 60 pounds.

MAJOR KUDOS TO HER!!
she turned the negativity into positively, and still continued on and live with her life.
i’m glad to know that she’s successful, and did not let the comments get to her, even though they must have hurt really bad.
i wish her all the best in life, and may all the happiness come to you, Lizzie Velasquez.
