About the Show

Follow the inspiring journey of 26 year old, 58 pound Lizzie from cyber-bullying victim to anti- bullying activist. Born with a rare syndrome that prevents her from gaining weight, Elizabeth "Lizzie" Velasquez was first bullied as a child in school for looking different and, later online, as a teenager when she discovered a YouTube video labelling her "The World's Ugliest Woman." Embark on Lizzie's physical and emotional journey up to her multi- million viewed TEDx talk, and follow her pursuit from a motivational speaker to Capitol Hill as she
lobbies for a ground-breaking anti-bullying bill.
