Lizzie Velasquez: Speaker, Author, Anti-Bullying Warrior

October is #NationalBullyingPreventionMonth. Follow @littlelizziev’s journey on Instagram, and explore the #stopbullying hashtag for more anti-bullying stories and messages.

Twenty-six-year-old motivational speaker and author Lizzie Velasquez (@littlelizziev) has dedicated her life to spreading positivity. Born in Austin, Texas, with a rare congenital disease that prevents her from gaining weight, Lizzie endured years of severe online bullying after a video deemed her the “ugliest woman alive.” But Lizzie no longer pushes the negativity aside. Instead, she uses it as fuel for anti-bullying activism across her social media channels. “Some days, the negative comments get to me, and on those days, I have to say, ‘OK, they are reminding me that I still have a job to do; I still need to keep doing the things I’m doing,’” says Lizzie. “To be able to process those feelings and let myself go through it has been really, really important for me.”
