Awesome Lizzie Fights the Bullies

1 Jul 2014Lizzie Velasquez is one, awesome, inspirational woman! Lizzie has been bullied all he life because of a rare syndrome where she does not have any fat and Lizzie has also lost sight in one eye.

Lizzie Velasquez is remarkable because as the saying goes, ‘Looks are only skin deep’, beyond that, Lizzie is a fighter of gigantic proportion! After being bullied savagely on the internet, Lizzie did not cower and walk away, instead she did TEDtalks and other online videos, to show who she really was.

Lizzie let her fighting spirit shine and showed that through hardships you can be strong, live your goals and show the bulling world ‘How wrong they are!’

In high school I was bullied by this one particular guy and he made me a stronger person. 20+ years later he has a pretty messed up life (according to his friends), and I’m doing okay!
