Motivational Speaker & Author of Lizzie Beautiful and Be Beautiful, Be You"
Lizzie was born with a rare syndrome that makes it impossible for Lizzie to gain weight. At this time there are only 2 other people in the world that are known with this rare syndrome. Lizzie was bullied during her childhood and she credits her parents and loved ones for instilling in her the courage and strength to be herself. The negativity of others couldn’t stop her from reaching the goals she had set for herself including becoming a motivational speaker and an author. In 2010, she published an autobiography titled Lizzie Beautiful: The Lizzie Velásquez Story. Her second book, Be Beautiful, Be You, urged her readers to accept and love themselves for who they are. Her latest book is Dare to Be Kind: How Extraordinary Compassion Can Transform Our World. She has become one of the most popular TEDx Keynote Speakers including appearances at the TEDxYouth and TEDx Women events.
