Once called "The World's Ugliest Woman," Lizzie Velasquez
was born with a medical condition so rare that just two other people in
the world are thought to have it: She weighs just 60 pounds and has no
adipose tissue, and cannot create muscle, store energy, or gain weight.
She inspired women the world over earlier this year when, during an
interview with CNN, she said that people "should stop staring and start learning."
Since then, she told Yahoo! Shine, she's been flooded with speaking
requests and supportive emails. In 2013 she's hoping write her third
book (her second, "Be Beautiful, Be You" came out in September),
continue her work as a motivational speaker, and meet as many people as
possible in 2013.
