This Illness Made Lizzie Velasquez To Be Called The Ugliest Woman In The World In A Youtube Video

Lizzie Velasquez was 17 when she stumbled upon a video about herself on YouTube called “The World's Ugliest Woman.” Velasquez, who is blind in one eye and has a rare syndrome that prevents her from gaining weight, was shocked by the thousands of hateful comments viewers wrote about her appearance.

She was born with an extremely rare congenital disease called Marfanoid progeroid Lipodystrophy syndrome that, among other symptoms, prevents her from accumulating body fat and gaining weight.

Her conditions resulted in bullying during her childhood. During her teenage years, she faced cyber bullying, which ultimately inspired her to take up motivational speaking.

It was alleged that Lizzie has to eat every fifteen minutes inorder to stay alive claims she has refuted. She claims she has no special diet and does not even track what she eats and does not care about the calories in foods.

She is one case of a very brave heart as not many would have the courage to stand up against bullies and stand strong and accept her body image.
