Labeled 'The World's Ugliest Woman': Lizzie Velasquez's beauty shines through
Brainerd MN 506 James St. / PO Box 974 56401

Give a listen to what this courageous young woman has to say in this motivational speech she gave in Austin, Texas.

Lizzie Velasquez is one of only three people on Earth born with an unusual genetic ailment that prevents her from gaining any weight. Lizzie has never weighed over 62 pounds in her life, and in addition, Velasquez was also born sightless in her right eye. She discovered a video of herself on YouTube labeled “The World’s Ugliest Woman” prior to her junior year of high school.
