This is my WIP #3.
This is Lizzie Velasquez. She was born with an extremely rare congenital disease
called Marfanoid–progeroid–lipodystrophy syndrome
that, among other symptoms
, prevents her from accumulating body fat
and gaining weight. When she was only 17, someone put her in a YouTube video and dubbed her the "World's Ugliest Woman." After seeing the barrage of hateful comments, Lizzie was inspired to become a motivational speaker and anti-bullying activist.
I chose Lizzie to add my voice to her anti-bullying campaign. Though I am only just beginning with CC, I aim to capture the essence of her beautiful soul as best I can. Shine on, Lizzie!
