Hi guys,did you miss me ? 🙂 So I just want to share this Awesome story .
Meet this inspiring young lady called Lizzie Velasquez.
Lizzie Velasquez has been called “The World’s Ugliest Woman” by some people (especially online). Born with a medical condition so rare that just two other people in the world are thought to have it, Lizzie Velasquez has zero percent body fat and weighs just 60 pounds (27kg). She has no adipose tissue and cannot create muscle, store energy, or gain weight.
Lizzie Velasquez was born in San Antonio, Texas,four weeks premature and weighed just 2 pounds, 10 ounces(about 1.2kg).
Doctors warned her parents that their child would never be able to walk or talk, let alone live a normal life.
Her 45 year old mother Rita, told the Daily Mail in an interview:
“They told us they had no idea how she could have survived. We had to buy doll’s clothes from the toy store because baby clothes were too big.”
Her two younger siblings however, are not affected by the syndrome. Her internal organs, brain, and bones developed normally, though her body is tiny. Since she has no fatty tissue in which to store nutrients, she has to eat every 15 to 20 minutes to have enough energy to get through the day. One brown eye started clouding over when she was 4 years old, and now she’s blind in that eye and has only limited sight in the other. She is a survivor.
In the comments on YouTube,some viewers called her “it” and “monster” and encouraged her to kill herself.
However Lizzie Velasquez set four goals:
1)To become a motivational speaker
2)To publish a book, to graduate college,
3)To build a family and a career for herself.
Now 24 years old, she is a motivational speaker and has given more than 200 workshops on embracing uniqueness, dealing with bullies, and overcoming obstacles.
She has graduated from Texas State University with a major in communication studies and has two published books , “Lizzie Beautiful” and “Be Beautiful, Be You.
Once in an interview on CNN’s Headline News,she told Dr. Drew Pinsky.
” I think I’m getting to the point where…
instead of sitting by and watching people judge me, I’m starting to want to go up to these people and introduce myself or give them my card and say, ‘Hi, I’m Lizzie. Maybe you should stop staring and start learning”.
I have to say she truly has a beautiful soul. Beauty isn’t just the skin,it goes much deeper than that. This story is also to show people with any medical issues that they can achieve their dreams,live a full life and have fun.
ARE YOU STILL COMPLAINING ABOUT HOW BAD YOUR LIFE IS???? BE INSPIRED.
N.B: To all those who sit behind their computers and say horrible things to others online just know that your all really ignorant and very stupid.
Wishing Nigerians everywhere a Happy Democracy Day . GOD Bless Nigeria.
Happy Democracy day to all Nigerians out there. Today we celebrate our freedom from Military rule and its dictatorship. We celebrate our Civilian Rule. Long live Civilian rule,long live Nigeria.
Note- Democracy day should not be Confused with Independence day.
