“Lizzie-Beautiful”-Velasquez-Rises-Above-Bullying-MainPhotoIt’s hard not to stare at Lizzie Velasquez, but she’s used to it. People have been staring at her since she was a baby growing up in Austin, Texas. The 24-year-old has a rare medical condition that prevents her from gaining weight. She has no body fat, and this affects her appearance. Often people think she suffers from anorexia. Yet she snacks all day to keep her energy up.
