How Will You Define Yourself

Lizzie Velasquez was once labeled as the “world’s ugliest woman”. She decided to take this title and use it to create her own definition of what beauty truly is. She was born with a very rare condition that caused her to be unable to gain any weight whatsoever. In this inspiring TEDx Talk in Austin, Texas, she talks about all of the struggles that she faced, especially in school and among her peers. Bullying shaped the way she lives her life largely, but certainly not in a negative way. Lizzie is certainly a testimony of living life to the fullest and not letting anything hold you back.
