Lizzie Velasquez was born with a rare genetic condition that prevents her from accumulating body fat.
Velasquez overcame tremendous obstacles just to be able to speak and walk. Because she is medically unable to gain weight, she must eat many small meals throughout the day to stay alive.
Fortunately, Velasquez is a very strong woman.
Rather than hiding away, Velasquez became a motivational speaker, traveling the world to share her story and speak out against bullying.
