Lizzie Velasquez was voted the ugliest girl on the internet however she has turned that horrible label into a platform to honor God and encourage others.
She has turned what all women would agree is a horrible thing into something that allows her to speak about her faith to people around the world.

Lizzie was born with a very rare syndrome that only 3 people in the world have. It prevents her from gaining weight. She is 23 years old and weighs 60 pounds with zero percent bodyfat.
Like in my case, her parents were an amazing blessing to her.
She is the author of Be Beautiful, Be You and Lizzie Beautiful and a motivational speaker.
After spending years wanting to look like everyone else, I realized I needed to love and accept myself just as I am. When I stopped listening to other people and started making a life for myself, I discovered my purpose in life, my passion. Is someone or something hurting you? Are you feeling alone or lonely? Afraid? Misunderstood? Do you wish even just one person would listen to you? Do you have a decision to make and need help choosing a path? I want to give you the tools to figure out what to do about each of those problems.
When an Internet video calling her, The World's Ugliest Woman, went viral, Lizzie set out to discover what truly makes us beautiful. Now she shares what she learned on that faith-filled journey.
In Be Beautiful, Be You, Lizzie uses anecdotes and exercises to teach readers to recognize their own unique gifts and blessings, talk to God in their own words, deal with disappointment, make and maintain healthy friendships, and set realistic goals.
In a world filled with airbrushed celebrity photos and plastic surgery, Lizzie Velasquez is a refreshing force of nature whose story will inspire anyone who has ever felt singled out, misunderstood, or afraid and who hasn't?
