Melbourne, Jan 9: A US woman, who had been dubbed the world’s ugliest woman on YouTube while she was still in school, has shed light on how she deals with haters who abuse and ridicule her, and sometimes even ask her to commit suicide.
Lizzie Velasquez suffers from a very rare medical condition that causes her to have a hyperactive metabolism which prevents her from gaining weight
She has now turned into a motivational speaker despite the self-esteem busting criticism.
Velasquez, now 24, recently revealed at a TED talk that she cried her eyes out when the cruel YouTube clip consisting of her picture surfaced.
Velasquez said that she has now realised that she cannot let people, who call her a monster, define her, but she will let her goals, success and accomplishments be the things that define her. (ANI)
