Motivational Speech by Lizzie Velasquez
Elizabeth Ann “Lizzie” Velasquez is an American woman with zero body fat, and her extremely rare condition inspired her to become one of the most celebrated authors and top motivational speakers in the world. She was born in 1989, and she studied at the Texas State University. Being called “The World’s Ugliest Woman” is one of the worst things that can happen to anyone, but Lizzie was brave enough to tell her story through an anti-bullying documentary about her life. She decided to turn her medical condition from a negative to a positive, and her story has inspired many people who may be different from others.
In a time when beauty is defined by supermodels, success is defined by wealth, and fame is defined by how many followers you have on social media, Lizzie asks the question, “How do you define yourself?” In her talks, she tells people that apart from herself, only two other people have her rare condition. She goes on to explain that her condition means that she can’t gain weight no matter what she eats, which might be good news for some women, but it’s not. She doesn’t let her condition wear her down, and she has discovered some benefits of her condition, which she explains in her talks.

He survived cancer when he was young because of radiation therapy. Unfortunately, the treatment burnt his spine, and at nine years of age, the burn caused a spinal fluid injury, which led to his disability.
